Improving Executive & Board Decision-Making!

Many leaders risk possible big losses to avoid the certainty
 of modest loss in personal prestige or respect”
- Daniel Ellsberg.

“On time, right quality, reasonable cost – pick two of the three!”

Over the years, Decision Making has become one of the most often requested topics for information, insight and/or development solutions from our consulting practice. This started me wondering! Why has decision making captured so much interest, and what lies behind these requests for assistance?

CEOs who Fail to Set Context Fail their Organizations

Imagine this situation: you’re at work, doing your job when your boss walks up to your desk. He says he wants you to take the stairs to the 40th floor.

You’re confused, but you oblige — after all, it’s a request from the boss. However, on the 39th floor, he calls you and tells you he now needs you to take the elevator to the lobby. Not only does he not let you finish the task he gave you previously but now wants you moving in a completely different direction, using different means.

Do you want to be that kind of boss?
