Clear your head before deciding

by on
in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

You can’t make a sound decision when you’re juggling lots of activities at the same time, says innovation consultant Luda Kopeikina.

Instead, you need to reach the same kind of “clarity state” that top athletes reach in competition. To get there, these four factors should be working for you:
  1. You’re sure of the quality of your data and confident that you’re thinking about the problem in the right way. You also make sure that all the other people who are working on the decision are aligned in their thinking and goals.

  2. You’re accountable for your decision.

  3. You ask the right questions and judge new ideas within the context of the goal you have in mind.

  4. You’re brave enough to consider all new ideas and options, regardless of the perceived risk. Then, once you’ve decided, you have the courage to carry out the decision.
—Adapted from “The Elements of a Clear Decision,” Luda Kopeikina, Sloan Management Review.
