Make a freakin decision

Decision making is a powerful tool in your leadership arsenal.  Including people in decision making spreads ownership.  The weight of vision or goal moves from sitting alone on the shoulders of the leader to a lot of other pair of shoulders.  Can you feel the freedom in that?

 

Seeking help in decision making doesn't make you a weak leader, it makes you a wise leader.   What makes you weak leader is hiding in decision making or failing to plan how to execute what the team decides is the best decision.

Great leaders ask:

What do you think?

What would you do?

Are you seeing what I'm seeing?

Where do you think we should go next?

What questions are you asking your team to help you make decisions?
