Why isn’t there more adaptation action? A big part of the problem comes down to decision making.

To take action, we need to make the decision to do so. How well we make the decision about what to do and how to do it has a big influence on whether we achieve our goals, or even whether action happens at all.

My focus is combining tools and insights from the fields of decision analysis and climate change adaptation to help individuals and organizations make good decisions in a changing world. This means taking the time to frame the problem (what’s wrong with the current situation, and what do you want to accomplish?), figuring out what makes a particular decision challenging (multiple objectives? uncertainty?), and bringing appropriate resources to bear. Through decision coaching, targeted research, training, and workshops, I’ll help you get where you want to go!
