Do you make emotional decisions that you later wish you could change? Do you delay decisions hoping events will change and you won’t need to decide? Are you proud of your decision making track record? Are your employees?

I urge leaders to use a simple decision making formula I call 30/30/30. It’s designed to bring a reality-based perspective to the process. Continue reading
