Making a decision

Listen to a meeting in which colleagues make a decision to practise and improve your listening skills.

Do the preparation task first. Then listen to the audio and do the exercises.

In my Job, decissions are very centered on few people, because in the public sector, there are a lot of reviews for each project and budgets.

My coordinator asks our opinion and decides alone what to do.


Emiko says: "we need to decide between us", but the correct way would be "among us". Am I wrong?

Thank you

Hi rerre,

In this context youl could use between us, among us or amongst us. All are correct and there is no difference in meaning.

Where I work decisions are made by the top management and then communicated to employees.

There are three forms:

1. After of analysed a research.
2. Based us in previous experiences.
3. Taking in count development of process.

Usually, everybody is giving their opinion and then we can discuss and make a decision
PS. Hello Kirk, I would like to ask you if the sentence below is correct?
'' The coronavirus interrupted my business."
Thank you

Hi Nikolaos Stavrianakis,

Your sentence is grammatically correct. However, since the situation is still ongoing the present perfect is probably better: The coronavirus has interrupted my business.

Thank you!!

How are decisions usually made where you work?

For some consideration, I prefer not to respond to your question. But in my opinion, a successful company must have an intelligent leader, a creative team, and good plans.
