aking decisions is a central part of leadership. Even when a leader usesa laissez-faire leadership style, the leaderremains responsible for making manydecisions such as the nature of the goalsthat followers should pursue and the typeof leadership style that is appropriate fortheir situation.Followers often look to leaders tomake decisions, particularly if they havedifficulty with envisioning the specifictasks that are required to achieve a specif-ic goal. Because of the importance of deci-sion making to leadership, you shouldunderstand how to approach decision mak-ing.To make better decisions, one mustunderstand that decision making is aprocess involving a sequential series of steps that are considered part of the criticalthinking process.These steps are (a) identify the prob-lem, (b) analyze the possible solutions tothe problem, (c) evaluate which of the pos-sible solutions will be most effective, and(d) select and implement that solution.These steps give you a structuredframework to improve the quality of yourdecisions. The first three steps focus oncollecting information that is useful whenmaking a decision. The way leaders asdecision makers collect the informationoften depends on their leadership style andthe situation.For example, the autocratic leadermay be comfortable with personally col-lecting the information, while a participa-tive leader may be comfortable relying onthe information provided by others.Identifying a problem requires thatyou understand that a problem exists andcan recognize the root cause of the prob-lem. While it is often easy to recognize thesymptoms of a problem, the actual causeof the problem may not be immediatelyapparent. As a result, a good leader care-fully evaluates the nature of the problembefore considering the possible solutions.All problems have possible more thanone solutions. Effective decision makingrequires identifying the range of possiblesolutions that address the root cause of theproblem. The analysts determines the wayeach solutions will affect the problem. Theanalysts should also consider the effect of the solution on the processes or systemsused by an organization based on theassumption that a change to fix one part of a system may cause a new problem withanother part of the system. At the sametime, the leader must remain aware thatdecisions can have effect on followerswhen evaluating possible alternatives.After evaluating the possible alterna-tives, the leader should be able to deter-mine the solution that is most likely tosolve the problem without causing newand unanticipated problems.A leader should also recognize that alldecisions will not produce the desiredresults. Some solutions appear effective intheory but fail in practice.As a result, an effective decisionmaker has a contingency plan in the eventthat the decision fails to achieve thedesired result.The contingency plan often consistsof a solution to the problem that wasrejected during the evaluation phase.__________________________________

ost of us are happy to be alive andwelcome 2013 while cheerfully saygoodbye to the past year.This time of year we all make resolu-tions and promises as we seek to improveour lives and enhance relationships withfriends and family members.A historian once said, that a way of understanding where we are in the worldtoday, is to understand the past by findingout how we got where we are and wherewe may be going in the future.It is therefore, very critical that wereview our personal, professional or busi-ness activities during the past year.Overall, in our evaluation, while theUS economic environment has shownsome signs of stabilizing, there weremany issues that contributed to the uncer-tainty in businesses.The business consulting firm,Protiviti, observed that during 2012, boththe State and Federal governments imple-mented several business regulatory andpolicy changes. The rapid pace of technol-ogy-and growing consumer appetite- havehelped to make privacy and informationsecurity issues, data management and ana-lytics, and software investments in busi-ness performance improvement top prior-ities.Protiviti also noted that achievingcustomer loyalty and changing geopoliti-cal dynamics, have become dominantconcerns in the ongoing wake of the glob-al financial crisis.I am sure that there are other chal-lenges or issues that are unique to ourindividual situation. It is therefore imper-ative for us to identify and consider thesechallenges and emerging issues to avoidbeing caught off guard later.Now that we have identified the prob-lems and setbacks of 2012, the focus for2013 must be on the solutions—the issuesunder our control.Proper planning and managing ourlimited resources must be our new year’sresolutions.Creating a good working businessenvironment for both staff and clients aswell as cooperating and networking withyour colleagues are key steps to help growyour business in 2013.
