Thesis Statement

It is important for leaders to have significant influence on team decisions; however, their team members should carry some influence as well.

Decision-Making Process

A decision should start with understanding how the decision effects the customers, employees and wellbeing of the organization. Once this has been decided there needs to be a set time frame of when the decision is going to be made. Once this has been set there needs to be a decision on who will be handling what part of the decisions. Is there technology involved? If so, maybe a portion of the decision needs to be conducted by someone in the IT department. As this process is happening there needs to be consideration of what alternatives are available and if they are practical (Strategic Decisions Group International, 2017). When going through the alternatives it needs to be determined yes or no for on whether it is a viable option (Mindtools, 2017). By getting others involved and guiding workers to their specific jobs it would follow the transformational leadership style. In this decision process it would be important to lead by example and be inspirational to those on the team while including them in on the discussions. Once these steps have been taken it is important to take all information that has been complied and have a group discussion on what the best decision may be. Although the leader would have the final say in the case, by sitting with the other members of the team and having discussions it will create a sense of unity.

    Your website looks very professional and organized. Colors are pleasing to the eyes and contents are intriguing to the audience like me. Well-done Website. Charts, graphs, and images give trustworthiness to your articles too! Breaking news section on top of your website is pretty cool, How did you do that? I am hoping to learn how to compose my site better especially with widgets.I am still learning. I love your social media icons on top, it is rare that i see them on top of a site page.
