Decisionsand Analysis of Decision-Making Processes

Everyonemakes decisions daily. Some are trivial while others are significantin the sense that they affect one`s life in future. Mydecision-making style relies on intuition heavily. I tend to makedecisions that I feel are right, and I often consult other people,especially when making important decisions. I often choose the rightoption and not the rational option when making decisions. This isbecause an action may be reasonable, but from the moral point ofview, it may be wrong. Sometimes I take much time making importantdecisions because there is no room for error when faced withimportant choices.

Froma leadership perspective, my decision-making style can equip me withthe art of decision-making that will affect a large number of people.As a politician, I would be able to make the right decisions by goingfor my gut feelings. Again, there would be a great chance that I canhave close advisors for consultation purposes. Although I would nottake their recommendations word-for-word, I would put their reasoninginto perspective while making my decisions.

Basedon the above personal traits regarding my decision-making process,Stone would characterize my decision-making style as intuitive andanalytic. This is because I make important decisions afterconsidering a variety of perspectives to because the margin for erroris minimal. However, the problem with this style is the fact that itcan be slow at times, particularly when faced with challengingsituations (Stone,2011).Given the duration, I have been in my program I have learned a lotconcerning decision-making processes and styles. This has changed myperception that decisions should always be rational. I now know thatright should come first because it embodies the aspect of morality,which is indispensable in decision-making.
