TRIPLE III TIME: Leadership Decision-Making (The Little Bit Strategy)

The task of Leadership Decision-Making for any business or organization is NOT designed to be easy.  Whether it is deciding on a financial investment, down-sizing strategy, personnel matter…whatever, every issue has different challenges and mandates appropriate time and deliberation.

Think about it.

In almost every decision area the issue of profit or loss or cost versus benefits come up for assessment.  Or maybe with regard to personnel, a certain decision may result in someone being laid-off or transferred to another town, state or even country!  SO many considerations have to be reviewed and it is challenging because there is not a PERFECTION IN DECISION-MAKING Guidebook?!

Little BitWell this TRIPLE III TIME message is intended to offer a Leadership Decision-Making idea I have benefited from over the years that I call:  The “Little-Bit” Strategy.  The basic principle of the The “Little-Bit” Strategy is simple…try and make sure your decision on anything helps EVERYONE involved to come away a little bit better and happier.  Whether it is awarding separate contracts to two different organizations and thereby sharing the income and responsibility, or assigning a job to a team instead of a single individual and thereby growing diverse project input.  The benefits far out-weigh the challenges.

The “Little-Bit” Decision-Making Strategy does not prioritize attempting to please one single individual or group.  The “Little-Bit” Strategy also doesn’t cater to the biggest whiner or loudest voice.  Its goal is leading by inclusion and shared responsibility.

It’s worked well for me.
