How to make good decisions? Techniques and coaching. Sorry, no legal advice!
Decision Making - Karsten Noack Coaching & Training Berlin

Make good decisions

 

Our decisions define us, because decisions have consequences for us and other people. Coaching makes it easier to identify priorities, find options and choose from alternatives. Therefore, you will find here information about coaching and decision support, decision techniques, perspectives and tools for good decisions.

Overview

The oldest, shortest words— yes and no— are those which require the most thought.

Pythagoras

Sometimes it’s the smallest words like yes and no that make us pause for thought the most.

Platon

Decision-making

 

All these questions, all these decisions: Are you going to stay employed or do you dare to take the leap into self-employment? Is it better to expand the offer or to specialize? Do you plan your life or do you decide for spontaneous adventures? Should you stay in bed or get up? Hamburg or Saint Tropez? Pizza, Pasta or Beluga caviar? Would you like to ask a personal coach for support in your decision-making or not? … Take a deep breath!

Please, can someone stop the clock?

 

We are often faced with important decisions: short, medium and long term. We can answer some of them immediately – almost instinctively – and when the decision has been made, you feel satisfied and joyful, enthusiastic and relaxed. Other decisions, however, rob us of sleep. Too much depends on the right choice. They distract us, our concentration and quality of life suffer…. and if we avoid the decision too long, then suddenly someone else or other circumstances decide for us, which rarely leads to a desirable result. 

No question, this is the best solution! — What I offer

 

If you want to stop repeating the same obsessive questions…. over and over and over and over and over and over again… and you don’t get ahead… just ask me. Instead of giving you an answer, (even better) I support you to select the best choice by…

  • finding and selecting your most important decision criteria such as motives, values, and principles.
  • reviewing the factors that influence your decision.
  • identifying the best choice by reflecting on the opportunities and expectations with regard to your own needs.
  • exploring the possible scenarios through the advantages, disadvantages and opportunities, risks and consequences of your decision.
  • thoroughly examining whether a decision needs to be made immediately or whether it might be more advantageous to delay the decision, or whether there is another important decision with a higher priority that needs to be dealt with first. 

Your coach and travel companion

I have been working as a coach since 1998. It’s often about decisions. Although I do not decide for my clients, I help them to make good decisions. It is often a matter of first clarifying the mind, recognizing the possibilities and expanding the scope for action.

What clients say

 

I was stuck in a rut, in all aspects of my life. I needed someone to listen to me and help me find the way out of the fog. I found coach Karsten Noack in Berlin. By the time our session is over, I have a new level clarity as well as confidence and energy to move forward. I recommend Karsten to anyone looking to make any kind of impactful change in their work or career and especially as a resource for decision making.

My coaching experience with Karsten taught me how to think differently. His coaching has helped me find more effective ways of easing my own process to clarity and steps to progress. Karsten is a great listener, and very engaged. He prepared me for a life changing decision. And it was a good decision!

Lea Wahl

I have always been a very indecisive person and preferred for others to make decisions on my behalf, and then inevitably resent them if it turned out to be the wrong decision. I now know what my core values are and every decision I make refers to them.
