About this course.

A Business Decision is one thing which every business owner or leader needs to make on a daily basis, yet very few of these business owners or leaders are ever taught the basics of good decision making.

And everyone from a seasoned CEO to the person betting their livelihood on starting a small business from scratch are under pressure to get everything right, all the time!

No one can be right 100% of the time. No one can ever say they will never make a wrong decision ever again. But you can safely say that you will never unknowingly make a bad decision ever again!

After running my own business for a few years, after almost two decades in large corporate environments, I found that some of this experience and training from corporate was useful. Other knowledge and experience, was worth a little less. One of the biggest challenges I found was the view of decision making in the larger enterprise, vs the smaller one.

We have applied structured decision making and critical thinking to how we handle major, minor and day to day decisions at our business, CATTS Ireland (https://www.cattsireland.com) from Day One. By consistently using and bringing this approach to our regular thinking, we have been able to navigate through a difficult economic and social climate over the past years. Without it, I doubt we would still be around.

This course was created to try distill some of the key messages to a format that others can recreate, as well as help set you up for good repetitive practice of the techniques so that when you have a Make or Break decision in YOUR business, you are better prepared to handle it.


With this course you will learn about the Thinking biases (Thinking Traps) that cause people to make incorrect decisions, and how to recognise and compensate for them. You will also learn about reframing problems or opportunities so that you can get to the root causes, not just the symptoms. Once you have reframed your decision, and made your choice, it focuses on how to keep your choice on track.


This course currently is in Pre-release, which means that you will get the full course, however the later modules are in video production. This allows us the opportunity to take any feedback and address it in the later parts of the course to ensure it more exactly matches your needs.

More information can be found at the course website: www.smbdecisions.org

As well as at our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/smbdecisions/
It is via this Facebook Page that we will run the closed Support Group, access to which will be FREE to you if you buy now. It will be changed to a subscription only service in the future.

After spending almost two decades in corporate technical, sales and brand roles, Joe set up CATTS Ireland - a Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy practice (www.cattsireland.com) with his wife. His wife and the team of therapists do all the fun therapy stuff, and Joe does all the admin, marketing and IT support. He also set up Brain Drain (http://www.bigbraindrain.com) in 2015 to host and create online courses.

After running his own business for a few years he found that some of his experience and training from a large corporate environment was useful to him, and the practice. Other knowledge and experience, was worth a little less. One of the biggest changes he found was the view of decision making in the larger enterprise, vs the smaller one.

He tries to deliver whatever content or topics he discusses in a light hearted and fun format. Occasionally there are jokes. Even less occasionally they are funny!
