Having worked in the corporate world for most of my career, and come across all walks of life and personalities, its clear that the indecisive nature of leaders has a huge part to play in the levels of success they might have had otherwise. How many times have you come across indecisive leadership?
Troubled Waters Ahead
There have been many times, where I have stopped myself from making key decisions that may have helped accelerate parts of my career. Having also been first party witness to many rudderless ship’s, and seen managers given new responsibilities only for that power to be rescinded later. Why might you ask, is this important to you as a leader? Unless you take appropriate measures to take control of the teams you manage and lead, more often than not someone else will take control on your behalf.
The Journey Has To Start Now
More often than not, it is the fear factor that stops us from making positive decisions, for fear of retribution or failure. You will be happy to know, this is far from the truth – by taking decisive steps to drive your leadership forward, you will soon be in the path of being noticed as a successful and strong leader. Realise that mistakes will be made – but know that you will learn more from those mistakes than you can ever imagine.
Having seen the steps that decisive leaders take, one can see why its easy to stand out from the crowd. Go forth and conquer.
