SOCIAL FACTORS INFLUENCING THE DECISION MAKING PROCESS: A COMPARATIVE STUDY BETWEEN OMAN AND BAHRAIN
Talal Hamad Humood AlRawahi
Decision making is part of our daily life, choices we have and alternatives we develop and our choice in selecting the most suitable alternative which is sometimes not the best. The aim of this study is to detect the impact of social life on the leading rehabilitation decision making in the Sultanate of Oman and Kingdom of Bahrain. The study used the descriptive analytical approach using questionnaires distributed to 121 leaders from various sectors both in Oman and Bahrain. The results revealed there is no statistically significant mean difference at (0.05) significance level between the mean of social life degrees which influence leading rehabilitation decision making and the following factors: gender, education, age, original home, status of the family, income level, social raising and the education of the parents. This indicates that leaders are independent upon their own experiences and thoughts, and that the other factors are tools that would help them in the process.
KEYS WORDS: decision making, leader, leadership, leadership rehabilitation, social factors, leading qualification.
