Decision Making

A lot of the time our role as a leader requires us to make decisions. Some times they are tough, and sometimes we get them wrong.  So how do we minimise the risks of getting decisions wrong whilst avoiding procrastination and missing opportunities?

An interesting book called Think Again: Why Good Leaders Make Bad Decisions and How to Keep it From Happening to You by Sydney Finkelstein, Jo Whitehead, Andrew Campbell examines a number of decisions that have gone wrong and identify the issues you should be conscious of when making a decision so as not to fall into the trap that others.

A number of red flags are identified when looking at the decision to be made that will allow you to identify when you should pause and re-assess.
