Decision-Making

Explanation

This is a decision-making skills assessment consisting of seven questions. Each question has five options to choose from, ranging from weakest to strongest (1 to 5). The questions are designed to evaluate the individual’s ability to make decisions in various scenarios related to their work, including the level of authority they have, how they handle difficult problems, and their ability to involve others in their decision-making process.

 

Analyzing the results will provide insight into the individual’s decision-making skills, including their comfort level with making decisions, their ability to prioritize decisions in complex situations, their tendency to involve others in decision-making, and their problem-solving skills. The results can be used to identify strengths and weaknesses in decision-making skills, as well as areas for improvement and development. Note this is not an personality test, just a summary of the answers.
