(excerpt) At the very heart of being a great and effective leader is the mastery of an invaluable and necessary skill: making sound judgment calls which result in beneficial decisions. Without practicing and perfecting this ability, the one in the leadership position will never realize his or her full potential in the position they are in, or in any position above it. Leaders who play an integral and productive role as they stand are able to remain calm, keep their thoughts in order, and push any temptation to react with emotion aside. They are able to make a quality decision under pressure and in the face of questionable circumstances without doubting themselves or second-guessing the choice they make. They remain consistently constant, even when the situation being dealt with appears to be nothing but chaos. They observe, assess, decide, and follow through to the end. When taking leadership and decisions into joint consideration, it is easy to notice the fact that there are those in positions of authority who simply do not possess the skills it takes to make effective judgments and choices. On the flip side, others seem to not only make decisions with ease, they do it well, applying wisdom, considering the potential outcomes, and acting accordingly. A leader of quality has already mapped out his life and career strategy, and is working at it consistently. They are prepared to handle the dilemmas which present themselves, and they have practiced using a calm affect to their advantage. They have designed a solidified a blue print and are applying methods daily to stay within the structure intended. ================= TABLE OF CONTENTS ================= The Art of Making Superior Judgment Calls Aspect I: Sources Educated Knowledge of Stakeholders Draw in Members of the Board for Training & Workshops Contribute to your Community while Conducting Business Consider Human and Environmental Capital Get your Council in on the Action Training Academies and Seminars External & Internal Stakeholder Council Groups in the Community Customers or Clients Groups with Special Interest Supply Providers Agencies which Establish and set Regulations Those Partnering Corporately Associations with other Industries Those with Investment Interests Union Organizations Aspect 2: Time Step 1: Preparation Step II: Making the Call Step III: The Follow Through You must have Exceptional Integrity & Profound Courage The Use of Visualization when making Decisions You will Encounter Re-dos Aspect III: Area of Domain Strategic Judgment Calls Tell a Great Story Where are we at now?
