About Decision Design Hub

Helen Lewis

Founder- Decision Design Hub. 


I live with my family, on our farm near Warwick, Queensland, Australia. I have created the Decision Design Hub to share with you, my 20-year passion and interest in values-based decision making.

My passion was ignited by Holistic Management training which I completed in 2002 and I have been educating families and organisations since 2003.With my experience in decision making- both personally and in community development, policy advising, lobbying and agriculture. I started to ask questions such as:

  • How do I sift out all the options (the noise), which option is right for me, right now? 
  • What makes a good decision? What do we need to check?
  • Are we solving the root cause?        
  • How do we find common ground and engagement with a diversity of people?           
  • How do we make good policy?                             
  • What are the consequences, the ripple effect or my footprint from my decisions?                     

Holistic Management values-based decision making answered these questions. Offering a process, that helps clarify what we need, so sifting the options is easier, the outcome of the decisions- are towards what we want and considers People, Environment and Prosperity  and other consequences.

Groups and Organisations can find common ground and develop policies that solve the root cause of the problem.

Make decision making   

By making values-based decisions in my life, I have noticed a level of calm, as the highs and lows became more even-keeled to a gentle ebb and flow in my life. 

Work with Me- work out which great idea is best for you and your team right now.

If you would like to know more about Decision Design for your family, group, team, business or organisation, I can create a course that suits your needs- both face to face and/ or online. It would be wonderful to discuss with you how I can make decision making easier and towards a better future.  Contact me- hello@decisiondesignhub.com.au 

Decision design is  creative, collaborative and invigorating.

Google Holistic Management and you will find a lot of land management information and the importance of grazing animals (properly managed with planned grazing)  in environments with seasonal moisture – the moisture in the gut of animals is what keeps the life cycle going in the dry season – the grass is grazed, the manure is taken underground by critters & microbes where the carbon is stored and provokes new life to grow… a natural process and one that is critical for curbing climate change.
(Savory Institute and Holistic Mgt International are leaders in this field)

But the management component is the values-based decision making – it is the best-kept secret – this is what I want to share with anyone interested in making decisions with better outcomes.
