Smart Move! Decision-Making Skills for Results

“In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
- Theodore Roosevelt

Decision-making is a key role of any manager and leader.  And many of us find this to be one of the most difficult tasks to perform.  We have a fear of failure and one of two things can happen, we either put off making the decision in the hopes that someone else will make it for us, or even worse, we make a decision using a knee jerk reaction.

In today’s fast-moving world, we are often under pressure to act immediately, rather than take the time to evaluate the situation and think things through completely. Not only can this lead us to a wrong conclusion and poor decision, but it can also cause conflict with other people, who may have drawn different conclusions. However, when we learn how to make timely, well-considered decisions, we can have a greater impact and lead our team to success.

In Decision-Making for Results, we’ll look at ways to be more decisive, support the decision making process of others and examine when we should decide or when, as leaders, we should engage and/or empower others to make decisions.

Each of these areas is important for us individually and in building commitment and engagement of our team. We will explore these dimensions and help you create the right balance of these factors.

Whether you call it a bias for action, being decisive or having a willingness to try, once you master this skill, you’ll be able to think, decide and act with confidence no matter the environment or situation!

We’ll cover:

    • The five barriers to organizational decisiveness
    • The different styles of decision-making and how to select the right one in the right situation
    • Seven ways to be more decisive
    • Five ways to build decision making skills in others and groups
    • Balancing personal decisiveness with engaging and involving others
