If you have to force a decision, should it be made? (Props to Judy B. Margolis, MA, for posing this question on Linkedin).
Look at your staff. Some are hard-chargers who will go off any cliff with or without a guardrail. Others are so timid that they look both ways before they cross the hall.
If you always wait for them to come to an agreement, your organization out of your control, and may be sliding gently toward disaster. Decisions have to be made so that work can be done. The courage to make decisions is part of leadership.
Sometimes leadership is the opposite of dithering.
Pass the Baton works with managers to teach techniques that capture mission-critical information which can be shared with current and future employees to enhance performance and productivity.
