As business leaders, decision-making is our primary responsibility, and what our clients, employees and the marketplace expects us to do. From purchases as simple as pens for everyday use (or delegation of someone to make those decisions) to developing short and long term plans for the entire organization, business leaders are positioned to “lead the way!” We must always strive to move the business forward, focus on the vision, think outside of our emotional baggage and build a thriving, growing organization.
The challenge facing business leaders is that there are so many dynamics and echoes around each decision that making gut level decisions often gives us little control over the ripples that result from them.
