Join Mike Figliuolo for an in-depth discussion in this video Determining who's involved, part of Executive Decision Making.
- One element of successful executive decision-making…is clearly articulating who's going to be involved…in making the decision.…Not everyone has a seat at the table,…even if they want one, or think they should be involved.…Clearly define who's involved and how the decision…is going to be made.…Explain the style of decision making…you're going to use.…There are four decision making styles you can use.…Autocratic, where there's one person…making the decision;…democratic, where the organization…is going to vote on the decision;…participatory, where it's a small body…of people who make the decision…and other people have input,…and then consensus-based…decision making, where everyone…has to agree before we make a decision.…
Check out my lynda.com course…on decision making fundamentals…for more details on each of these…decision making styles, and when…they're appropriate to use.…Communicate clearly to the organization…who's going to be involved,…and what their role is in the decision making process.…Will the person be a participant?…
