Jetty Erna Hilda Mokat, Rifdan, Andi Ima Kesuma, Recky H. E. Sendouw


Decision-making is an important part of the duties and functions of a leader and is a means of achieving goals that will determine the success and the future of an organization. This study describes the determinants of decision-making for women leaders (regents) in government organizations in the Southeast Minahasa Regency, North Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. This qualitative research uses a case study approach. The data collection techniques were observation, in-depth interviews, and documentation. The data checking was done by triangulation. Data analysis used a qualitative descriptive interactive model through the stages of data reduction, data presentation, and conclusion drawing. The results of the study indicate that religious values as spiritual values originating from beliefs dominate decision-making, have a firm and hard attitude not accepting input and suggestions from subordinates, lack of control over the rules, are very easily influenced by certain groups outside the structure, and act inconsistently with the provisions of the applicable laws. The cultural value system, in which we grew up, the prevailing norms, and the inherent conceptions are considered valuable, impact actions, ignore the ethics of government administration, do not consider the impact of refusal, and prefer discretionary actions but override the legal requirements of discretion.


Keywords: determinant factors, women leaders, decision-making.
