Good leaders are good influencers.
Most importantly, they are excellent decision makers. They know what needs to be done and even when things don’t always end up they way they have anticipated, they take responsibility and try again.
If you want a nugget of wisdom from good leaders, this is how they make excellent decisions:
They trust themselves
They are aware that not all decisions are easy nor would have a favorable outcome, but they trust they would choose to decide based on what they think and know is right. They easily adapt to different environment and diversity among employees. In short, they rise above the challenges they face because they know they can get the job done no matter how difficult it may get.
They know it is not always about experience
Experience goes a long way. However, it is not everything when it comes to getting a job done. There are still things one must learn along the way, even the most experienced of leaders. What matters is the ability to look into the situation, make decisions based on the information at hand and of course, looking at the situation and the bigger picture on any given day.
They consider no politics
Politics happen everywhere, and each one of us has experienced it. Great leaders do not dip their hands into politics as much as possible and focus on the job that needs to be done instead. When one entertains politics, it may lead to decisions that do not serve the company and the goals they have set. When it cannot be avoided, transparency is always the key so as not to lose the trust of the people they are working for and working for them.
They are clear on what they want to happen
Excellent leaders know what they want and what they want to happen. In short, they have a clear purpose, and they don’t deviate from it even when things do not happen right away. This way, they make great decisions because such decisions always revolve around their purpose.
We hope this helps you make great decisions and be an excellent leader in the future.
