What Makes a Manager Into a Good Decision-maker? 10 Traits for Decision Making

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':
1. Knowledge (of the background, organizational goals)
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.
