Besides making an autocratic decision, you may sometimes need to consider the following types of decisions. 

 

Autocratic - 

A decision that is made alone without consultation with anyone, and the decision-maker will accept full responsibility for the consequences of the decision This is usually done when an important decision needs to be made and a quick solution is needed but no one else is around to assist.

For example, there is a fire in your office and you need to decide whether or to leave or continue sending out an extremely important email.

 

Consultative -

A decision that is made after you have discussed, talked over the problem with another person or persons, such as a more experienced superior or several of your colleagues or teammates.

Two heads are frequently better than one when is serious decision must be made.

 

Group -

When a problem involves the entire staff or a team, they should participate in the decision making.

Being involved also gives them some form of ownership, which will make them more committed and motivated to the decision and the results that come with it.
