Including advice on every aspect of the decision-making process, Effective Decision Making will help you to: * Approach problems efficiently and effectively - define objective, collect information, develop options, evaluate, decide and implement * Think in a more imaginative way * Know when to rely on your intuition * Feel more confident about arguing your case * Develop your thinking skills With examples of good and poor decision making, as well as exercises designed to help you maintain and improve your mental fitness, Effective Decision Making will enable you to master one of the most important skills needed to make you an effective leader.
