Leaders Need To Be Decisive

Coach Mike Krzyzewski (Coach K), Duke

“The truth is that many people set rules to keep from making decisions. Not me. I don’t want to be a manager or a dictator. I want to be a leader—and leadership is ongoing, adjustable, flexible, and dynamic. As such, leaders have to maintain a certain amount of discretion.”

– Coach Mike Krzyzewski


The way to develop decisiveness is to start right where you are, with the very next question you face”  –  Napoleon Hill

“Decisiveness is a characteristic of high-performing men and women. Almost any decision is better than no decision at all.” – Brian Tracy

“If I had to sum up in a word what makes a good manager, I’d say decisiveness. You can use the fanciest computers to gather the numbers, but in the end you have to set a timetable and act.”  – Lee Iacocca

“The percentage of mistakes in quick decisions is no greater than in long-drawn-out vacillation, and the effect of decisiveness itself ‘makes things go’ and creates confidence”  – Anne O’Hare McCormick


Decisiveness- a great way to defeat procrasination!
