While we speak about decisiveness on a regular basis, the need for decisive leaders cannot be overstated.
Steve Diggs recently wrote, “Be a Fast-Forward Leader: Make a decision. The world is paved with flat squirrels that couldn’t make up their minds.”
Too often, leaders hesitate when it comes to decisions. The result leaves followers confused, discouraged, doubtful, and distrusting.
As leaders, we do not want or need this situation.
Lead decisively. We need to gather as much information as quickly as possible and then decide. Do not get caught in the delayed reaction action syndrome. The result is deadly to leadership.
