I am not confidence in my decision making skills, which is why I am here. I’ve never had to make an important decision in my life. I’m taking this class to hopefully help with my first major decision- where I will be attending college. I am confident with where I am applying, but do not know how to pick the best college for me when the time comes.

Yes, I am confident in my decision making skills. Especially with difficult decisions, I spend a lot of time going over it in my head, the pros and cons. I usually think about what my heart wants, what’s good for my family, and what my gut instinct is. Sometimes I do write it down, just to see how it comes out on paper as pros vs cons and if it measures up to what I’m thinking it will. I’m glad to say that I don’t have too many regrets or bad decisions.

Reflect on the article that you have just read about making decisions.

  • Do you feel confident in your own decision-making skills?
  • Are you able to make a decision and then stay the course and see your actions through to completion?

It actually depends on the situation. If it’s for personal decision, i’m quite okay. But if it is related to a group or firm, with major responsibility, i am not confident enough to decide on my own.

After reading the material, I have learned that I have both 50% positive and negative decision-making skills. As it pertains to business, I am 100% confident that I have always demonstrated 100% positive decision making skills that result in effective, and efficient outcomes. In my personal life, now that, is something I have to get better at. However, after reading all of the material, I am confident that I will be able to make better decisions in the future.

In regards to business, I am able to make decisions, stay the course and see my actions all the way through. In my personal, it is the complete opposite and something that I am still learning how to master.

  • Do you feel confident in your own decision-making skills?
  • Are you able to make a decision and then stay the course and see your actions through to completion?

I realized that I was overly confident on my own decision-making skill that sometimes I insisted too much on my own points of view to be taken in my organizational team discussions.
After I read the article, I knew that I oftenly misses the evaluation process of my own decisions and me, as a team leader sometimes do or say something that could create a supporting situation for the groupthink to occur.
So, I’ve taken some notes that I wish would reminds me to not doing the same mistakes again.

Depending on the situation it would determine if i am comfortable in making that decision. Normally I’m good at making decision, but i wasn’t the most confident in my decision. But, after reading the article i am and will be more confident when making decision for myself and my team.

We can’t say making right Decision is a difficult task but what it requires is a better understanding of the person on that topic. Yes, I do quite well but it consumes Little Bit time in analysing the decision to find It’s negative side to make a Ethical Choice. Once a Decision has been made then it’ll become easy to act upon it. Only thing we require is firm hold on our decision.

No, because sometimes my decision-making skills are not quite good enough to make a decision because I don’t make such good decision in my age right now.

Most of the time I feel confident in my own decision making skills. I have discovered the I use a kind of rational decision making model or intuitive decision making model in both my personal and professional life, all depending on what the situation calls for. However, sometimes for less important decisions I tend to act on impulse or “gut feeling”.
I was not always able to stick by my decisions through to completion, however that has been improving over several years and continues to do so.

I generally feel confident in my decision-making especially if I feel that I have enough information needed. With more important decisions I usually run through similar kind of models as presented in this course and in some cases even write it down on a paper. Of course everyone has made bad decisions in their life but it is important to make it as a learning experience and not to make same mistake in the future.

Yes I am trying to do my best on sticking into my decision. Sometimes it is hard and I start re-thinking or evaluating my decision again (which is good in some cases). Usually due to a good process prior locking my decision I end up sticking with it.

Making decisions is always hard to do for people because you have to get to the final say and want. I usually have to think a lot to decide where this is the right decision or not it has to be right and not against the law or anything and best way to go forward.
