Power Play: Collaboration is sometimes the enemy

Power Play: Collaboration is sometimes the enemy

Not every decision needs to come from a committee of people deciding. The best decisions are sometimes made solo.

Collaboration gets a huge rap and, in all honesty, Power Players often wonder why. Sometimes a group discussion that ultimately reaches a consensus is the best course of action to take, but when the rubber needs to hit the road decisions that are sharp and consistent are the way to go.

One leader, one vision and one clarion voice can be the difference between success and failure.

The thing that separates the Power Players from the wannabes is the ability to know when to collaborate and when to make decisions without including everyone else in the decision-making process.

It’s hard to make a decision solo. Most of us prefer to lean on those around us to take away some of the pressure. Power Players have broad shoulders and they can carry the decision all on their own.
