Hogan Judgement Report

The judgment of leaders is reflected in their decisions. Although leaders’ decisions determine the fate of their organizations, on average, half of their decisions will be wrong. Therefore, good judgment involves not only making good decisions but also responding appropriately to bad ones

ecause bad decisions are so common and have grave consequences, it is essential to try to improve decision-making. Becoming aware of one’s decision-making style and becoming more coachable can help people make better decisions and correct bad ones more quickly. The Hogan Judgment Report describes the decision-making style in terms of three components

Threat Avoidance vs Reward Seeking

Some people make decisions based on a desire to avoid financial, legal, physical, and other threats, they focus on the negative side of the risk-reward equation and try to minimize their potential losses. Other, people make decisions based on a desire to pursue all possible rewards. They are attracted to the positive side of the risk-reward equation and consistently try to maximize their gains

Tactical vs Strategic Thinking
Some people make decisions focusing on the immediate context and relevant details. They focus on short-term issues such as cost, implementation, and crisis management, and may be less concerned about larger strategic issues. Other people make decisions based on a future-oriented, big-picture perspective. They focus on generating new possibilities and may be less concerned about practical issues such as cost and implementation.
Data Driven vs Intuitive Decisions

Some people make decisions by carefully reviewing relevant data and other facts. They may also review their past decisions periodically to adjust them based on updated data. Other people are more intuitive in their approach; they often make decisions based on their past experience and move on
