Kirk Love wrote a post called “Decide. Don’t Apologize.”
“Here’s a tip if you’re in a leadership position. Make a decision. Convey that decision to the team in a direct manner. Then execute it.”
Like Kirk, I’m new to being “the boss”. And like him, rather than do what he says above, I often hedge. I provide rationale.
A while back we did a workflow review and one thing I was told by many people on my team is a lot of the time, they just want the decision. They don’t need the consensus building, they just want me to decide on something and go forward.
So there’s another thing for me to work on.
