Sendsteps

Decision making with a group

Meeting with phones

Problem

As the leader of a team or company, it’s always a balancing act to determine how much of a decision should be made on your own, versus how much to have your team, company or colleagues weigh in. Some of the easiest ways to ask a group its opinion, is to ask for a show of hands, ask them to write it down or ask them to do an email survey. However, with each of those methods, there can be downsides. Raising a hand might ask for a favorable decision that is liked by the CEO, and can be influenced by group thinking and desirable outcomes. Doing a survey or writing it down anonymously can be better, but it takes time to tally the results.
