Am I a good Decision Maker?

E-mail Print PDF

How do you make decisions? Do you go with your gut? Do you gather a few people in a room, and choose the alternative you think would probably work best? Or, like many people, do you tend to adopt the first reasonably good solution you identify?

As a valued team member, you probably make decisions every day. Some decisions are relatively straightforward and simple: Who should serve on the training tools team? Others are quite complex: To improve quality, what should be changed training tool?

The first decision will impact people’s workloads, and some people might be disappointed when they aren’t chosen. However, you know the strengths of individual members of your team, so you can put together a good committee.

On the other hand, changing a training tool is a very complicated decision. You will have to consider what new processes are available. How much will the change cost? How long you need to break on investment? How large will that return be? How long will it take to train people to use the new system? What impact will there be on our customers?

Given below are a few pointers which I explored in a e magazine and thought will be useful if shared across.

Effective decision making: The six steps

  1. Create a constructive environment.

Define what you want to achieve and agree on a process to do so. Ask the right questions and ensure that you have involved the right people and encourage participants to contribute to the discussions, debates, and analysis without any fear of rejection from the group this would generate good alternatives.

  1. Generate good alternatives.

This step is still critical to making an effective decision. The more good options you consider, the more comprehensive your final decision will be.

When you generate alternatives, you force yourself to dig deeper, and look at the problem from different angles. If you use the mindset ‘there must be other solutions out there,’ you’re more likely to make the best decision possible. If you don’t have reasonable alternatives, then there’s really not much of a decision to make!


  1. Explore these alternatives.

When you’re satisfied that you have a good selection of realistic alternatives, then you’ll need to evaluate the feasibility, risks, and implications of each choice.

  1. Choose the best alternative.

After you have evaluated the alternatives, the next step is to choose between them. The choice should be clear.

  1. Check your decision.

With all of the effort and hard work that goes into evaluating alternatives, and deciding the best way forward, it’s easy to forget to ‘sense check’ your decisions. This is where you look at the decision you’re about to make dispassionately, to make sure that your process has been thorough, and to ensure that common errors haven’t crept into the decision-making process.

  1. Communicate your decision and take action.

Once you’ve made your decision, it’s important to explain it to those affected by it, and involved in implementing it. Talk about why you chose the alternative you did. The more information you provide about risks and projected benefits, the more likely people are to support the decision.

E-mail Print PDF

Ever surprised on the way brain works when exams are near!!
Memory becomes as sharp as a sword, problems appearing impossible to solve just two weeks ago are now peace of cake.

I am sure that you have asked your self, why this superman performance just before examination?
Now science is revealing secrets behind the night before examinations.

Our brain deals differently with different type of emotions. Brain gives very special attention to fear, Why?
Well in most of cases fear is closely related to survival.

Fear is most dominant emotion associated with exam (More, when you are not ready for it).

When ever you are scared brain releases some chemicals in body (I am sure you are not interested in complicated biological names), In effect heart rate and breathing increases (remember that dhak-dhak), body releases a high amount of glucose and adrenalin (what is this??)
