Today I am participating with the Leadership Team on our annual retreat to learn about this topic.  We are very hopeful for it and expect it to help us as we continue our Leadership Development. I was not surprised by the Decision Style Profile Report about my approach to decision-making process. An excerpt reads: You used the Teaming decision style on three cases. This indicates a slight preference for this style.” My second most used style is Collaborating decision, but both styles do not render well for certain types of decision-making needs. I am glad we are going over this, because as managers we can borrow from any of these 5 styles for our decision-making arsenal. More tomorrow on Part 2.
