Learning Activity 1 - Theme One
The importance of having a decision making style
Take the following quiz and determine what your decision making style is and describe it to the class. Then using the reading from this week comment on ways that you might improve and perhaps even change your decision making style to create one which would improve your performance as both a leader and a manager. Make sure to describe the difference between the two styles of a leader and manager when discussing the changes as well as how the job might affect your style. Finally comment on whether your style should be changed depending upon the job or task that requires the decision or if you can suggest that it remain constant instead.
