Making Better Decisions

The health and success of any organization depends on the ability of its leaders and managers to make sound, impactful, confident decisions. This program supports this critical skill by presenting a system to guide the decision-making process. Participants get a view of their current skills and preferences through the Decision Style Profile, a management assessment tool that provides guidance on how to choose the most effective and appropriate decision-making styles for given situations. The assessment evaluates the appropriateness with which respondents include others in the decision-making process and the extent to which respondents consider five critical decision factors in their decision process. A personalized report compares the participant’s chosen decision-making styles to the most appropriate styles.
