Drive your team toward clarity and closure

Commit to Decisions

End meetings with clear and specific resolutions and calls to action

Today’s Tip: Drive your team toward clarity and closure. Help the team articulate specific goals and actions. Also discuss the worst-case scenario to diminish fear of failure by realizing that even a poor decision is survivable.

Food for Thought: Effective team leaders drive commitment by soliciting all ideas, opinions, and perspectives, then step up to make a decision and clarify a course of action. It is better to make a choice, act with boldness, be wrong and change direction than to waffle or wait for 100% certainty.
