Leaders must be decisive. When they are indecisive, their leadership is called into question.
What causes indecisiveness? Here are three possibilities.
Fear: fear of making the wrong decision, the unknown, and fear of failure are leading causes.
Trust: leaders who lack trust in their own abilities and the abilities of others are often indecisive.
Procrastination: this mindset leads to indecision because there is a lack of urgency.
What can be done to help leaders overcome this indecisive tendency?
Gather ALL the facts.
List out the pros and cons.
Pray about it.
Trust your instincts.
Establish a precautionary backup plan.
Then, make the decision.
