One of a leader’s primary roles is to make the important decisions. Of course, these decisions should not be made without the input of the affected parties and/or others with expertise in a given area. It is also important that these decisions are made with an appreciation of the risks and benefits related to a given situation. And, the bigger the risks or potential benefits the more thoughtful the decision making process should be. Making “seat of the pants” or “gut level” decisions is not a leadership virtue especially when it comes to significant matters. One of the most valuable assets a leaders can bring to his/her organization is their judgment and judgment requires both discernment and discretion.
