The importance of decision making comes down to the very fundamental nature of human beings. We are created with the ability to think, reason, make decisions and hold ourselves accountable. The only way we can really experience our humanness is to be able to do that. As adults, we all make decisions in our everyday lives; in our relationships, in our homes, with our free time, and yet in the workplace so many of us our relegated back to following instruction rather than using our decision making skills. Creating an environment that pushes decision-making down to the people closest to the action is best for the organization, and it’s even more important for the individuals that make up that organization.
