As a project manager, CEO, COO, business owner, or any type of leader, you're constantly being pulled in different directions. You're constantly making decisions - some big, some small. And oftentimes, you have to make these decisions quickly and without all the information you would like to have.


So how do you make sure you're making the best decisions possible?


Here are a few tips:



1. Get input from as many people as possible - but not too many.

When you're trying to make a decision, it's important to get input from as many people as possible. But at the same time, you don't want to get bogged down by too many opinions. Try to limit the number of people you consult to those who are most affected by the decision or those who have expertise in the area.


2. Define the problem clearly.

Before you can start looking for a solution, you need to make sure you're clear on what the problem is. Otherwise, you'll just be solving the wrong problem! Spend some time clearly articulating the problem and writing it down so that everyone is on the same page.


3. Brainstorm potential solutions.

Once you know what the problem is, it's time to start brainstorming potential solutions. Again, involve as many people as possible in this process so that you can get a variety of ideas. Try not to evaluate the ideas at this stage - just come up with as many possibilities as you can think of.


4. Evaluate the options & choose the best one.

Now it's time to start evaluating the options and choosing the best one based on your team's specific needs and goals. Along with your team, consider things like feasibility, costs, risks, benefits, timeline, etc.


5. Communicate & implement your decision.

Once you've made your decision, it's important to communicate it clearly to those who are affected by it. Make sure everyone knows why you made the decision and what they need to do in order to help implement it successfully. Then follow through and make sure your decision gets implemented efficiently!


Making decisions is an essential part of being a leader - but it's not always easy. By following these tips and involving your team in the process, you can ensure that you're making fast and informed decisions that will help move your business forward! Thanks for reading!
