Why new leaders should make decisions slowly

  • United States Image

Sep 25, 2019

On September 25, 2019, the Harvard Business Review published an article on how the stakes are high when a new leader takes over. Despite their training and experience, a full 74% of new leaders say they are unprepared for the new role, and in 18 months nearly half of them disappoint or fail entirely.

In many cases, leaders either judge too quickly, making snap decisions that prove to be ill advised, or wait interminably to “gather more facts,” only for the critical moment to slip away.

Review the full article on the Harvard Business Review's website.
