As a leadership consultant, one of the main areas that I work with my clients is in helping them become highly effective decision-makers.
My definition of a highly effective decision-maker is being 100% willing to hold yourself responsible for your circumstances and fully accountable for your progress towards the results you desire.
Are you an effective decision maker?
Rate yourself on a scale of 1 to 5 on the following (where 5 is a key strength)
- Taking 100% responsibility from where you are starting from?
- Taking 100% accountability for your progress towards the results you desire?
- Inviting candid feedback about your own performance?
- Not wasting time or energy on things you cannot control or influence?
- Owning your circumstances and results, even when they seem less than desirable?
- Recognizing if you are dropping into the victim cycle and avoiding this?
- Being a continuous self developer?
- Having a strong personal brand?
- Willing to fail and learn from this?
- How do I do this?
- Help them define how success for them will be measured
- Ensure they have a relentless focus on these key priorities
- Hold them to be accountable on what they have agreed to do
- Be candid with them – I will highlight attitudes or behaviours that may be limiting their performance or productivity
