Up to 40% of actions we perform every day may not be actual decisions, but rather unconscious habits.

How many decisions do you make in a day? For yourself? Your team? Your organization? And how important are these decisions?

Whatever weight they may carry, decisions have to be made consciously and deliberately to be effective. This is particularly important, as research has shown that the way our individual brains (as well as collective organizational ‘brains’) work, we tend to form habits for routine or repeated decisions. Once these habits are set, the decisions become automatic, bypassing the conscious/cognitive use of the brain.

Do you find yourself struggling with decision making? Second, guessing yourself? Are you afraid of making the wrong decision?

Does your company have poor process management? Have high employee turnover and poor customer relations?

"Sometimes our doubts keep us from making a choice that involves change. Thus an opportunity may be missed". 

- James E. Faust
