DECISION MAKING QUOTES

Post by mr.banker on Tue Mar 24, 2009 3:06 pm

It's so much easier to suggest solutions when you don't know too much about the problem.
- Malcolm Forbes

The man who insists on seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides.
- Henri-Frédéric Amiel

For every complex problem, there is a simple solution....and it is nearly always wrong.

If you let passion inform your decisions, you'll make good ones.
- Anne Sweeney, President, The Disney Channel

I used to be indecisive; now I'm not sure.
- Graffiti

Indecision is fatal. It is better to make a wrong decision than build up a habit of indecision.
- Marie Beynon Ray

Good question to ask yourself: How would the person I would like to be do what I'm about to do?
- Jim Cathcart

Lack of planning on your part does not necessarily mean an emergency on my part

Effective decision making requires jumping the critical 12" gaps between the head, the heart and the gut.
- Grant M. Bright

For I am well aware that scarcely a single point is discussed in this volume on which facts cannot be adduced, often
apparently leading to conclusions directly opposite to those at which I have arrived. A fair result can be obtained only by
fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question.
- Charles Darwin, Origin of Species

Value-based leaders believe in democratic workplaces in which employees participate in decisions.
- James O'Toole

Be willing to make decisions. That's the most important quality in a good leader.
- General George S. Patton, Jr.

There is a time for departure even when there is no certain place to go.
- Tennesee Williams

Additional problems are the offspring of poor decisions.

When inquiry and advocacy are combined, the goal is no longer 'to win the argument', but to find the best argument.
- Peter Senge

Never mistake silence for agreement.

Where all think alike, no one thinks very much.
- Walter Lippmann

Consensus means support derived when each person feels heard and understood. All should be satisfied that they had a
chance to influence the decision and declare their willingness to support it.
- Marvin Weisbord

When debate fails to occur, the solution will always be weaker than it could have been.
- Thomas Isgar

Decision by non-decision means you are surrendering decision-making influence to 'the four winds' -- chance, fate, the
system, or the powers that be.
- Thomas Kayser
