Sometimes you need to make the hard decision and expect that everyone will rally around it.
We're back after a long summer break with one of our favorite leadership concepts from the Trillion Dollar coach around executive decision-making.

In our roles as leaders, we have to balance facilitating, enabling, and decision-making.
One thing we can do as leaders to immediately improve our decision-making skills is to create a Decision Journal. You can read more about Decision Journals here: https://fs.blog/decision-journal/
