Decision-making is a key leverage point to share responsibility, decentralise power and unlock the capacity for creativity and innovation in a team. It is a core skill for leaders, yet in a team context it can also be the source of inefficiencies, bottle-necks, conflicts and unhealthy power dynamics. Effective decision-making needs clear roles, methods and processes. 

In this toolbox we have put together a number of tips and methods for collective decision-making, along with a couple of reflection questions. All the methods are ones we use in our team, which we have adapted over the years to fit our culture and structures. We suggest trying out the methods and checking what supports you and not, and adapting them to make them your own. We hope this toolbox supports you to create more efficient and empowered decisions together!
