Power Play: The department of really fantastic decision making

How many truly fantastic decisions do you see in a week? Not that many. If and when they do happen, they are usually made by Power Players.

Really fantastic decisions are more than just right. They are contagious and they get the whole room nodding in enthusiastic agreement.

They galvanise, they stabilise and they energise. People find their purpose and they recommit when they hear a really fantastic idea.

In a lull, people need to be motivated and given something to reach for. A really fantastic decision takes on a life of its own and more often than not, other fantastic decisions follow in its wake.

If you want to learn from Power Players, learn to recognise a really fantastic decision and then make it.

Ambivalent decisions get ambivalent responses. Shoot for fantastic and see what a difference that makes to people in the room. Power Players know to aim for one fantastic decision rather than five lukewarm ones. You should, too.
