Managers, Decide!

17 April, 2013 (21:22) | Leadership, Management | By: Administrator

In his book, Tipping Sacred Cows, Jake Breeden mentions the importance of being decisive.

Leaders should reflect on a decision and then make it. There are a dozen reasons to delay a decision, and if you want to find a reason to hold off, you will. But delaying decisions is a cop-out strategy.

Thoughts Joe and Wanda?

Joe Kerr: Either reflect on a decision briefly and make it, or just ask your wife!

Wanda B. Goode: One common delay tactic is to continue to request additional information. More facts can always be gathered. Not a good practice, though. Much better to follow Jake’s advice.
