Myth 3

I have to make all the decisions.

If you are making all the decisions, it’s impossible for you to focus on the key success factors.

You must support decision making success among those you lead to free your time to focus.

If you are making the majority of your decisions the same way, you are missing a tremendous opportunity to build credibility. “My style” is not a credible reason to make decisions using one comfortable method. Realistically, the right decision method is found as you consider the factors of time, ownership, and involvement. The resulting plot in the decision quad guides you to the decision method that best builds and maintains your credibility.

The bottom line … If you are making ‘all’ of the decisions, you are failing to lead in some key areas of your accountability. The reason – if your day is filled with tactical activities and reactions, you are not leaving the time required for strategic decisions.

Your weeks must be filled with setting and giving direction, not controlling tactics.

Leading is taking advantage of all the resources available to you.
