What is Decision Making?

What is Decision Making? This question is being asked daily in the corporate world as professionals struggle to have a decision-making process that is viable and progressive.

It is a vast subject and sometimes and it is best to approach it from a different angle –  what is Decision Making not?

  • An automatic repeat of past decisions
  • An escape mechanism to prevent a thinking process
  • “to just make a decision”
  • A panic response
  • An emotional last minute response
  • A quick fix methodology
  • Surety that relies on past experience
  • A wishful thinking
  • A pain prevention strategy
  • An escape from reality mechanism

And more…

Decision Making is a process that is never sure! Now… that is a strange statement to make by someone who teaches it for over 25 years!

I say that because you never get 100% result in any decision making, simply because every decision has obvious and not so obvious consequences, some of which remain hidden for a long time.

Decision Making

So what is Decision Making? It is a Critical thinking/Emotional Intelligence/instinct process that needs time, competency and patience, whereby, the final decision strives for the best possible result, but understands that 75% success is the best possible ultimate result. At the same time, preparations are made for the 25% negative consequences that will no-doubt impact the outcome.

Therefore, decision making without ongoing strategic development and strategic thinking, will likely lead to much more than 25% adverse results.

I conduct Decision Making seminars world-wide with a substantial success that places my clients in the safest and creative position possible, which is critical at time of Change.
