IS A BARGAIN
"Pigeon Indecision" is a fable about the challenges we all face as employees, leaders and managers when it comes to making decisions. As leaders, we struggle with who should be involved in each decision, how decisions should be made and how to make sure we get them right. How can we make sure that individuals are communicating clearly across silos? How do we stop fearing failure when it comes to making decisions? How can we all take accountability for our own decisions? While the story is fictitious, the process it touches on is real — and is a forward step to making more intentional choices to cut through the chaos; to make important choices by focusing on what really matters; to be more productive.
