Are most of the decisions you make a failure or success?
Test Your Skills

We make decisions every day. Normally, simple decisions require a fairly straightforward decision making process.  However, more complex decisions usually require more effort to properly deal with the associated challenges; such as uncertainty, risk, alternatives, and consequences.

Making decisions can be very stressful, due to the possibility of conflict and unwanted outcomes.  Being aware of your and your teams’ strengths and weaknesses helps alleviate tension and empowers you in taking decisive and intelligent action. 

How competent are you in your decision-making skills?  Are your skills as sharp as they could be?  Here are some True or False questions you can answer to help you decide on where your decision making skills stand.


Decision Making Skills Questionnaire



1. Prior to making decisions I
    ensure that I have established
    clear objectives that identify the
    desired outcome.

2. I am not afraid to make crucial
   distinctions such as: “Is this 
   decision efficient and effective?”

3. When a group decision is    
    required, I know where to find
    the appropriate stakeholders  
    and how to approach them to
    ensure they are represented
    accurately. 

4. I make every effort to create a
    supportive environment in which
    debate, discussion, and scrutiny
    of potential decisions can occur.

5. The overall objective is to make
    the best decision for the
    situation; the goal is not to
    compete with colleagues or find
    the “perfect” answer.

6. Built into my decision-making
    process is the awareness and
    acceptance that the unforeseen
    will occur, and I have taken that
    into account without
    unnecessarily holding up the
    process. 

7. I think in terms of responding
    rather than reacting. That
    approach will help to circumvent
    any problems that current
    decisions may create in the
    future.

8. I am aware of my bigger purpose
   and use that insight to determine
   if the decisions I make reflect
   that purpose.

9. When decisions lead to
    unexpected or undesired
    outcomes, instead of
    criticizing, I ask, “What have I
    learned from this experience and
    how can I improve?”

10. Before making a decision I ask,
     “Is this choice in alignment with
     my values?  Is this me?”

11. I make the distinction between
     decisions based on inner
     perception vs. impulse.

12. When I make a decision based
      on a “gut feeling,” it comes not
      only from a feeling, but from  
      my entire core of inner wisdom,
      experience and knowledge.

13. I want my life filled with
     people, circumstances, and
     objects that reflect the real me,
     and my decisions reflect that.

14. I rarely second guess my
     instinct, when it feels right I
     go with it.

15. Not making a decision is a
     decision in itself; and
     sometimes the best course of 
     action is taking no direct action 
     at all. 

16. With every decision comes an
     element of risk.  Although it can
     be difficult to consistently
     predict outcomes, I use
     intellect as well as emotion to
     mitigate that risk.


If you answered true to 10 or more statements, you are a fearless and smart decision maker.  If you answered true to less than 10, you may wish to explore your process of decision making.
