Re: Making Decisions

Importance of decision making
What are the implications of the decisions we make? The direct consequences of our decisions may be obvious, but additionally, it’s important to remember:

    • Our decisions affect people. Nearly every decision we make will affect different people in one way or another. It’s important to be aware of the influence our decisions will have, and understand what the “human cost” will be.
  • The decisions we make demonstrate our values. Our actions testify more powerfully than our words what we believe in. For example, if a senator speaks in favor of “family values” but has a history of well-documented extramarital affairs, we’ll be pretty skeptical of his stated values.
  • Our decisions will set an example for those who follow us. As leaders, we must understand that what we say and do will be looked up to by our followers; that our actions will be copied and modified by those who respect us. For example, whether or not you serve alcohol at a fundraiser sends a powerful message to those who attend, and it may be copied by others as they hold fundraisers. In a very real sense, “follow the leader” is a game many people continue to play all their lives.
  • It demonstrates a desire to lead. By making decisions, we prove to our followers that we are willing to take the reins, direct the action, and get things done. We have shown that we are willing to put our necks on the line and accept the consequences of our actions.
  • Not deciding is a decision in itself.
  • Because decision making is an important part of leadership, as well as being something we can’t avoid, it’s a good idea to know the best way to go about it. The first step in doing so is to understand what the possibilities are.
