Making sound decisions is core to every leader’s (every human’s) ability to succeed. This excellent HBR article by Sir Andrew Likierman is a must read.
I love his practical advice and final thoughts: Leaders need many qualities, but underlying them all is good judgement. Those with ambition but no judgement run out of money. Those with charisma but no judgement lead their followers in the wrong direction. Those with passion but no judgement hurl themselves down the wrong paths. Those with drive but no judgment get up very early to do the wrong things. Sheer luck and factors beyond your control may determine your eventual success, but good judgement will stack the cards in your favor.
I couldn’t agree more. Enjoy the article.
