-Seek out input and opinions from others. -Change my mind and priorities a lot. -Base my decisions upon what I think and believe. All that matters is what I think. -Procrastinate making a decision or commitment.
Another important aspect of leadership is your decision-making ability. You cannot delete decisions about direction, vision, and strategy. As owner you have the ultimate responsibility to act in the company's best interest. There will be times when a tough decision needs to be made. Getting opinions and input from others may provide yo with more support, but the decision is yours to live with.
If you procrastinate, set deadlines for yourself. Define what criteria you will use to make your decision before attempting changes. Some decisions are simple. Anything that will threaten the viability of the business must e dealt with quickly, and your decision must always be in the best interest of the business. This may be in direct contrast to what your personal priorities would dictate. Regardless, you need to make the decision that is in the best interest of the business even if it costs you personally or financially. Foregoing a pay check to make payroll or paying the bills hurts in the short term but is a good business decision. This not only. Preserves your integrity but protects you against lawsuits from shareholders, IRS actions, and bankers or investors. Plus people know they can count on you to do the right thing and that builds up reputation.
I hope you did not answer "All that matters is what I think." Because in business nothing could be further from the truth. You cannot work in a vacuum an succeed in business. If you tend to change your mind a lot, that indicates a lack of confidence; if you are a promoter, that is a natural state for you. However, indecision can damage the business and frustrate your staff. You often have to make decisions without enough information or as much time as you would like. Making decisions is a skill that can be acquired.
Depending on your personality seeking the "opinions of others" can be a way to avoid making a decision. It is also something that can be used to avoid accountability.
