"It seemed like a good idea at the time" is one of my favorite sayings because I have used it more than I would like to admit. Said in another way, "Good judgment is learned through experience and experience is gained from bad judgment." You can re-invent the wheel or choose to learn some lessons from others who have made good and bad choices. Practicing good judgment is a skill that can be developed if you have the right tools. The feedback I regularly receive about this presentation is, "Your lecture made me re-examine the criteria and the process I use when making decisions for myself and the groups I lead. It has given me a whole new approach to my decision-making process." This presentation: - Defining good & poor judgment; - Identifying your decision-making criteria; - Detailing the decision-making process (DMP); - Reviewing the reactive & proactive DMP; - Practicing your DMP through scenarios; - What to know before your next adventure; - Examining Adventure-Risk-Being Safe; - Considerations for leaders, participants & groups. As the Director of UCSB's Adventure Programs, for 25 years, Wayne Horodowich has trained over 1,000 outdoor trip leaders.
