3 rules for helping anybody who wants help with a decision

1. The decision doesn’t matter. The process does. It is all about the process.

2. Your biggest value add would be to walk them through a process. My suggestion would be the Decisive process – I carry a small card summarizing this process in my pocket.

3. Offer your point of view ONLY if asked. (I always need help with this)

If you find yourself talking more than them, take a timeout. This isn’t about you, it is about them.

PS: The wording in the title is key – they need to want the help.
