Being Decisive - by Ravi Patel

 

A decisive person shows the ability to make decisions quickly but effectively. An Entrepreneur needs to be decisive to be a good leader.

 

Uncertainty in any organization is a killer. When an Entrepreneur takes too long to make a decision - either due to lack of knowledge or fear of making the wrong one, it creates a period of anxiety in the employees.

 

It is often better to learn to say "yes" or "no" more often than "maybe." Your employees will respect you for making quick decisions even though you might be wrong sometimes. Procrastination is not an admirable virtue for great leaders.

 

Being decisive does not mean being impulsive or basing decisions on your gut feel. You need to consider all pertinent facts in arriving at the decision, but don't over-analyze and delay unnecessarily.

 

Entrepreneurs need to lead by example. Being decisive themselves will instill the same level of rapid response in the rest of the organization.
