My latest mention in Forbes, re: Decision Making. PUNCHLINE: Execs often know the right decision, but it's a hard one. So they avoid...
spinning the facts,
becoming combative/defensive when challenged,
etc, etc, etc.
THE WORST PART
is that as often as this happens,
it's also often the case
that most everyone around that exec
sees the problem, the avoidance, and the rationalizations.
respect for that exec,
trust in their judgment,
trust in their leadership...
it begins to erode.
