Legendary General Electric CEO Jack Welch uses these three strategies to make wise decisions quickly:

1. Keep it simple. Simple procedures make for rapid decision-making. So does the ability to simplify complex issues before making a call.

2. Be fast. Complex bureaucracies take ages to make a simple decision. Effective leaders sidestep the red tape and make their calls quickly.

3. Believe in yourself. It takes self-confidence to decide.
