Even a small decision can have a large impact. So how do you make a good one?

 

 

Leaders concern themselves with the big picture, and rightfully so. But every so often, it's worth reminding ourselves that decisions large and small have a major impact on our organizations, our people and our own lives.

 

Entrepreneur and coach Jeff Boss gives some eminently practical guidance on decision-making in his latest post:

 

"The choices you make as a leader can have powerful impacts," he notes. "The 'chance of a lifetime' can appear out of nowhere only to turn into something painful. Conversely, there are those opportunities that don’t seem worthy of a second glance at the time but eventually wriggle their way on to your missed opportunity list."

 

So how do you make a good decision? Boss offers nine tests to see how the decision you face will work out for all concerned. Here are a few of his statements:

 

Good decisions positively impact others.

 

Good decisions are replicable.

 

Good decisions include others.

 

Good decisions are accountable.

 

Good decisions involve self-awareness.
