This handbook has been created as a conceptual framework to assist leaders within the critical thinking process of making decisions. Today, society, environments and experiences dictate outcomes and on-the-go decisions, that negatively impact organizational outcomes, are made rather than examining the perspective to consider when making decisions. By detailing the importance of thinking for the greater good, this handbook serves as a platform that provides insight, perspectives, examples, and details how leaders make decisions that are crucial for their organization. Importantly, the handbook conceptualizes leadership characteristics that determine decisions, reviews the implications of organizational cultures and climates that influence decisions, and provides an analysis of how decisions are made. The goal of the handbook is to better understand the process of making decisions while providing tools and reference points to assist leader.
