Managerial techniques have an unfortunate habit of disappearing as time goes on.  These techniques are vital when it comes to leading a team through the decision-making process.  Though sometimes the outcomes can be negative – every team will learn from negative or positive consequences from the decision made.  Mastery Technologies’ new content partner, Advanced Knowledge, offers an effective training course depicting one of the more successful decision-making processes in history.
The training course, “The Cuban Missile Crisis: A Case Study in Decision Making and Its Consequences,” uses this event in history for a comprehensive look at how managerial skills can lead a group toward effective decision-making.  The course suggests five topics to hone in on:

  1.  Choosing the team members
  2. Setting the tone for openness and trust
  3. The role of the leader
  4. Developing alternatives and considering their consequences
  5. Moving the group from conflict to consensus

Another training course produced by Advanced Knowledge is, “Chilean Mine Rescue: The Unstoppable Team.”  This course depicts three essential elements for success to create an unstoppable team.  These three elements the course thoroughly explains are:

1.  United by a common goal

2.  Finding the right resources

3.  Responsiveness and adaptability

Both of these courses found on are published on our new Video On Demand platform, so they can be played on all smartphones, tablets and desktops.
