The job of leaders is, first and foremost, to make decisions.
Decision making styles and how executives go about making the big calls on strategy and leadership is often at the root of success and failure.
Our in-depth research into the reasons of executive success and failure has proven just that. Successful executives’ decision-making styles evolve in a predictable pattern over the course of their career up the leadership pipeline. Successful executives are on a constant journey of learning and un-learning. Success ultimately has as much to do with acquiring new skills and competences as letting go of old patterns and habits.
Styles deal with how people make decisions, how they use whatever mental capacity they possess, and not whether they make smart or dumb, good or bad decisions.
Decision styles deal with how individuals use information and how they generate solutions for problems. Different situations and problems require different styles. The secret to success is situational fit.
and the capacity to adjust to changing circumstances and use the right style at the right time is they key differentiating factor of successful senior executives and high growth potential talents. We help predict how fit your leaders – and your organization – are to deliver on the strategy. Now and in the Future.
