Great leaders are decisive.
They make tough calls, and they have the spine to follow through. Yet, the rest of us seem to get stuck in cycles of indecisiveness. So what sets our more decisive-minded colleagues apart from us? Not much, really.
Research has shown that everyone experiences traces of indecisiveness — say, pessimism, or a low sense of control — when contemplating a decision. There’s no avoiding it. But decisive people don’t let these negative feelings hold them back. Once they make a decision, and begin the steps to execute it, they start to feel confident, capable, and in control.
The good news is we can all train our brains to think this way. We just have to be willing to bite the bullet. Gulp.
