I am someone who works well independently and confident in making those hard decisions. I run my own business currently and am constantly aware that whatever I decide will backfire on me, but I am ready to take responsibility for it if it were to happen. I am also very aware there are certain things out of my control and have to ask for help. It happens all the time in real estate transactions, especially when I was first starting out because there were a lot of things I was unaware of that could happen. And when they did, I knew I had to ask someone for help. However, with clients, there are some things that can't be overcome. Like being laid off or deciding to walk away from a deal.
I am confident in making crucial decisions even when something is outside of my control. Assessing the situation and learning from colleagues and supervisors what has been successful in the past to stick to a tried and true course of actions, or implementing a fresh idea if nothing has been successful in the past that would benefit both the client and the company.
Confident, I make crucial decisions daily. Sometimes you must take an educated risk from the knowledge you have gained on other situations. If there is a problem then you look at the decision made and the options and determine what the resolution should have been. I often read guidelines and talk through difficult scenarios and it can become clearer. If there is considerable discomfort it is good to research and get opinions.
I'm confident that my decisions will bring good results.
