Decision making is vital in our life, be it workplace or home. My long experience in industry and thirty years of marriage say decision making needs the following traits in a 'manager':

2. Sincerity: to want to make a sound decision
3. Time consciousness
4. Cost effective
5. Steadfastness: duty bound
6. Good listener
7. Positive attitude
8. Participative: offer opportunity to team members to make suggestions
9. Team spirit
10. Confident.
