An Unsmall Act of Leadership

A creative challenge for the day, or the week: be the person who makes decisions happen.

You don’t have to actually make all the decisions, nor should you. Instead, merely listen for the points in a conversation when the talk has veered topically off topic.

No, your options are many: frame the decision, create options, or — boldest yet — simply suggest it’s time for a decision.

Debate till the relevant points of view have been explored. Then decide to decide. After all, that was the whole reason for the conversation in the first place. Right?
