Does Your Boss Have a Boss?
I've been guilty myself. There is great criticism and consternation now about leaders in Washington "kicking the can down the road." It seems many of the tough decisions are deferred to someone else. And most often, they leave damages for others to fix along the way.
So, I must confess. I know it's often hard to make tough decisions. Even the obvious ones can sometimes be difficult. I've put off challenging decisions at great expense to me — and most often increased stress and decreased results.
