Not all leaders are comfortable with making decisions so they don’t. Or at least they don’t on the big issues, but they do on the smaller issues.
Sometimes the decisions leaders make seems to take forever. They need to research the issue, they need to gather feedback on the issue and they need to think about the issue. I repeat, sometimes the decisions leaders make seem to take forever.
My leadership tip for you this week is to learn to be decisive on all issues. Become grounded and consistent in your decision making. No procrastination and no hesitation.
The three simple things that can help you achieve this are;
- Use your company vision, mission and business values as your guiding light to decision making
- Position yourself to think things through in advance
- Never play favorites … remember it’s always business never personal
Decision making can make or break you as a leader… make it count.
