We always want to make good decisions for good reasons. That will accomplish good things for our organization and our people.
So avoid the potential for making a decision because it’s “good for me.” Or making a decision because you have the power. Ego is a terrible thing to allow into your decision-making process. It almost always turns out badly—for you and for the organization.
Make your decisions based on good information, good recommendations, and thought- ful analysis focused on achieving the best outcomes for everyone. Remember that ego focuses on yourself. Good decision makers focus on the organization and others.
