Leadership Decisions – How to do better

As a leader, you need to be willing to take decisions. So how can you get better at taking decisions?

  1. Avoid jumping too quickly to solution mode.
  2. Weigh up the pros and cons and then act.
  3. Remember, a 70% perfect decision is much better than no decision.
  4. Never forget that it is much easier to modify something you have than start with a blank canvas.
  5. Accept that you will never have perfect information.
  6. Don’t let fear stop you.
