The Minefield of Decision Making - HuntingEnglish

The Minefield of Decision Making - HuntingEnglish | Interesting | Scoop.it

by Alex Quigley

 

"...in the coming year I will question my ‘instincts‘ when I go about making a decision. That is not to say my professional instinct, rooted in experience, is always inherently faulty, but simply that I will approach a decision checked by a healthy dose of critical self-awareness of my biases. It would be easy to paralyse the whole decision making process by stumbling over an endless list of biases; however, good sense would dictate that we solve this problem by creating a climate of healthy debate wherein we are challenged by our colleagues and beyond by people who constructively disagree with us. Our decisions will be better for this crucible of debate. If we learn with this openly reflective style then colleagues will feel more invested in decisions and more likely to subsequently carry them out with success. The mine-field of decision making will have many of our potentially detrimental biases diffused for the better."
