# 24 Directive and Participative Decision-Making: Using a polarity lens to discuss what’s in it for you and your team and what’s at risk
How involved are you in the decisions that impact your work environment? If you are a leader, are you engaging the clinicians in decision-making?
Decisions are made every day in healthcare by clinicians and by leaders. Some of those decisions can have a major impact on the culture and clinical outcomes.
Today we are discussing the Directive and Participative Decision-Making polarity in the context of healthcare leadership.
All decisions should be made to serve the mission with an intention to have a positive impact.
The reality is, it is not always easy to do! It’s a process, a dance between the directive and participative decisions and having clear boundaries.
Join us as we talk about this critical polarity and some of the realities faced when working toward this type of decision-making.
