Decision Style Profile (DSP)

Discovery Learning Inc.’s expertise in executive and organisational development have brought about a portfolio of world class resources in the areas of leadership development and change management.

This decision-making assessment empowers leaders to make better decisions by enlightening them on how to choose the most effective and appropriate decision-making styles for given situations. Each participant is asked how they would make several real-world business decisions.

A personalised report compares the participant's chosen decision-making style to the most appropriate styles, backed by extensive research and a current database of over 20,000 executives and managers. The Decision Style Profile evaluates the appropriateness with which participants include others in the decision-making process, as well as the extent to which participants consider five critical decision factors in their decision-making process.


The instrument addresses both initiated and opposed change and places the respondent on a continuum between:

  • Build knowledge of a research based system for choosing the most appropriate decision style
  • Create awareness of five critical decision factors
  • Build awareness of how improved decision-making practices pay off on the bottom line
  • Understand the five decision styles and the conditions that make each appropriate and inappropriate
  • Learn five decision factors critical to making effective decisions
  • Determine a personal Decision Factor Index score
  • Compare decision skills to those of 20,000 managers

With the Decision Style Profile, leaders can:

  • Improve and refine their decision-making skills
  • Equip themselves with a research-backed, uniform system of decision making
  • Strengthen awareness of effective outcomes based on the level of inclusion of others in the decision-making process
  • Discover development opportunities in their decision-making capabilities and learn how to strengthen these
