Decision Making & Management Style

No two managers are alike. Every single manager you meet will come from a different background on both a personal and professional level. Each will bring a unique set of attributes to the table, making his or her decision making process slightly different from the next. They will all, however, bring attributes that fall into the following categories:

  • The type of decision making model he uses
  • The type of priority setting system he has
  • His ability to properly time decisions
  • Tunnel vision
  • Previous commitments
  • Creativity

Over the next few days we’re going to explore each of these attributes in order to determine how they affect a manager’s ability to make a strong decision. I think you’ll be surprised at how each of the above can affect the way a person thinks, both indiviually and combined with the other attributes.

Until next time, think about the type of manager you are. What process do you usually go through when you need to make an important decision?

Thanks again,
