Here’s a Coaching Gift to Help YOU Make Successful Decisions
At times, it is not an easy load to carry being responsible for making decisions in the workplace. However, understanding that “it comes with the territory”  empowered leaders this article was written with you in mind, to equip YOU to make successful decisions rather than shun, delay, ignore, delegate or toy with the plagued matters.

At ground floor, let us agree that if allowed indecisions can be like a pond or mangrove that is transformed from something live, vibrant, refreshing, free flowing and clear into a restraining, clogged, motionless, polluted, muddy and lifeless environment.  

Making decisions are vital for the growth, development and maintenance of any workplace.  Decisions are the defining elements of the; who, what, when, where and how of what is and what shall be. All decisions in the workplace have the potential to be critical forks in the road and should be made after much thought and consultation as needed.

Your coaching gift comprising of ten (10) defining inquiries will require comprehensive thinking. They are designed to help YOU the executive, manager and associate make a decision; the best decision for a successful way forward.   

Are you ready to un-wrap and experience your gift?! Have at it!

Reflective Thinking: What matter has been delayed, avoided, ignored or toyed with for far too long?

Realistic Thinking: What are the consequences of tolerating the indecision of this (plaguing) matter?

Big Picture Thinking: What will be the realistic, potential benefits, opportunities and profits realized as a result of a decision?  
Unselfish Thinking: What significance will this decision hold for the workplace, its mission and vision statements, strategic plan, priorities and values, shareholders, associates, clients, products and services, service delivery, competitors, industry or sector, and those who uphold your workplace as their benchmark?

Bottom Line Thinking: If the decision has options, envision the use of a scale with your options as solid gold bars; now determine which has more value based on its weight?

Focused Thinking: What will the decision require as its first act/task of commitment?  Who will be responsible for executing the first act/task and those to follow?

Shared Thinking: Who will hold the commitment process accountable, ensuring that all relevant tasks are completed in a timely, well organized, and effectual manner?

Possibility Thinking: One year from now, what would it be like if living with the results of the decision?  What new possibilities can you see emerging?

Innovative Thinking: How can innovation be considered as apart of this decision; consider the “if’s and how’s” of an expansion, new products and services, collaborations, upgraded service delivery, technical advances, infrastructural renovations plus policy and procedures editions, and any other area that can benefit from an improvement initiative.     

Good decision makers are good thinkers.  They never lack ideas that can build any size workplace in any sector or industry. Regardless of their level empowerment and influence good decision makers always have high hopes for a better than good, above average future. They are known for thinking things through then following through.  Make it your professional attribute to be a good decision maker.   

“Success is as simple as thinking. Making decisions is what ignites the transition from thinking to success.”
