Decision making is one of the most important skills a leader needs to possess. A key determinant in how successful you are as a decision maker is your ability to communicate with and influence others.
There’s no getting around it that making decisions can be quite challenging – from mounds of data to review, inclusion of others (or not), knowing your audience, naysayers, fear of making the wrong decision, and fear of being called out on your decision. Need I say more?
Decision making can be difficult, yet every leader needs to develop their ability to do it wisely, efficiently and in a timely fashion.
I’ve worked hard to perfect the art of decision making. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to discuss the topic with Steve Caldwell at Manager Mojo. We got together on his podcast to discuss the critical areas you should consider for improving your decision making process. There is no perfect process, and usually there are no perfect decisions, but this podcast will help you get clear on making your process quicker and simpler.
