Relational decision making

Definition (1):

A type of decision making in which choices are logical and consistent and maximize value is called relational decision making.

Definition (2):

The process of relational decision making is radial and considered as too time-consuming and indecisive by linear decision-makers.

Generally, men are more linear having a mindset driving them to reach from point A to point B in the quickest route possible. Men are also likely to be hierarchical in making their decisions, forcing an alignment and consensus where a person always does not necessarily exist. There can be exceptions among persons. Executive decision-makers’ successful traits are culturally placed with the linear, hierarchical approach. Allowing for various decision-making models is minimal in the majority of the corporate cultures because men have planned most of the infrastructures and processes that support the present culture of the industry.

The bias revolving around how the most crucial decisions need to be made is that they should be done swiftly or quickly. Unlikely, in several large companies, leaders face challenges for consensus and alignment, sometimes forced by group-think. For instance, in boardrooms, women are likely to ask harder questions that their mail colleagues believe take conversations obviously versus including the big policy decision’s considerations.

The above-mentioned situation is not acceptable in today’s world. The organizations should have an inclusive culture where diversity is welcomed and acceptable. The decisions should be made with relational decision making with the equal contribution of both male and female.
