Eight Keys to Effective Decision Making

New leadership development content now available online

Decision making and leadership go hand in hand. You don’t get one without the other. When the pressure is on, the ability to be decisive is essential. The real question is this: How do leaders consistently make great decisions?

In this series of lessons, we’re going to explore eight keys to effective decision making. Those keys include God, DNA, research, experience, advice, intuition, influencers and timing. Here’s the truth about each of these decision-making factors:

When the pressure is on, the ability to be decisive is essential.
  • Without God, decisions will lack supernatural wisdom.
  • Without DNA, decisions can lack organizational consistency.
  • Without research, decisions can lack depth.
  • Without experience, decisions can lack maturity.
  • Without advice, decisions can lack perspective.
  • Without intuition, decisions can lack peace.
  • Without influencers, decisions can lack buy-in.
  • Without timing, decisions can lack impact.

The decisions you make each day can create a ripple through your entire church or ministry organization. You, your teams, and your entire congregation or organization pay the price and reap the rewards (or consequences) of every decision.

As you read and discuss each lesson, apply these insights to improve your personal and collective decision-making processes.

This eight-week study, which appears in the May/June issue of Influence magazine, is now available online as a free download. Church leaders can print multiple complimentary copies of this resource and use it to promote development, spark discussion and inspire vision among team members.

The online resource also includes a fill-in-the-blank guide for team members to use as they follow along with the studies.
