How to Make Better Decisions


    Welcome to the first new edition of Leading Choices (LC #1). In each edition, I will cover three categories as stated in the grey bookmark on the right. 

    I sent the first edition to my subscribers on March 11, 2021. To get the latest edition, use the sign-up form to the right. 

    1 – Leading Thought

    2 – Your Choice

    Have you ever wondered how much influence you can have on your career or your leadership? How often do external factors influence your decisions?

    Quite frankly, it hardly matters. That’s because you have the power of choice. That means, even if you are hit by unfavorable circumstances, you can choose to respond in different ways. Indecision and passiveness are choices, too.

    Why does this matter? Mainly because the more you decide not to make a choice, the harder it gets to make a choice when it counts. Many people choose inaction and stay in careers that do not suit them or do not fulfill them. In addition, many tolerate behaviors in their organization until the impact on the culture this behavior creates is hard to reverse.
