Leadership Decision-making Assessments
with Sam Roberts


Leaders make decisions

and determine how decisions get made... 

Join ATD SF East Bay and Sam Roberts, consultant and executive coach to numerous Fortune 500 companies, who will guide us in a discussion on how a small front-end investment in assessment can save companies time and money.

When a leadership development program integrates an effective tool for helping leaders make good decisions, such as the LDMA (Lectical® Decision-Making Assessment), two huge benefits are realized:

  1. It doubles (on average) the amount of skill development that takes place
  2. It leads to improved decison-making on the ground
  3. It predicts similar improvements in the performance of peers and subordinates

    What's In It For Me?

    Participants who attend this session will leave knowing a little bit more about how the seemingly boring world of assessments can actually make their lives better, and save their companies money.  You will hopefully feel a sense of amazement that tools like these assessments exist, and relief that the high-stakes world of business has an instrument that can measure with statistical validity and reliability dimensions of a leader’s decision-making process that were previously unavailable to coaches, consultants, HR directors, and learning & development specialists.


    1. The Leadership Decision-Making Assessment (LDMA)
    2. The three basic cognitive skills of decision-making and how they are measured
    3. The 8 scales that represent those three basic skills
    4. How this assessment and others like it help save companies money

    Competency Addressed: Leadership ..
