#Leadership #Tip of the Day – #DecisionMaking

Decision making
Make quality decisions with today’s leadership development tip!
It’s challenging to make quality decisions under time constraints. Once we’ve reached a decision, we often want to move forward rather than take the time to test it. When you think you’ve settled on a decision, find one more piece of data. Think past the decision and into the consequences. What could go wrong? What else will be affected as a result of this decision? Sleep on it. Give yourself time for problems and questions to surface before making a final decision.

decisiveDecisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work Hardcover – by Chip HeathDan Heath

From the Book:  Chip and Dan Heath, the bestselling authors of Switch and Made to Stick, tackle one of the most critical topics in our work and personal lives: how to make better decisions.  Research in psychology has revealed that our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities: We’re overconfident. We seek out information that supports us and downplay information that doesn’t. We get distracted by short-term emotions. When it comes to making choices, it seems, our brains are flawed instruments. Unfortunately, merely being aware of these shortcomings doesn’t fix the problem, any more than knowing that we are nearsighted helps us to see. The real question is: How can we do better?
