Discussion: Reflecting on Your Decision-Making Style
An important step in making better decisions is learning about yourself and acknowledging bad decisions you have made. While you shouldn’t dwell on past mistakes, you can learn significant lessons from unsuccessful experiences. Effective leaders are not afraid to take responsibility for plans that didn’t work out and take steps to make things better.
In this discussion, think about a time you have made a poor decision for a group. Think about a decision you have made that impacted your family, colleagues, friends, or community. In your initial post, address the following:
- What was the context and decision you made?
- What was your decision-making style?
- What went wrong?
