Leaders have to lead in a world of high-speed, high-stress chaos. The essence of leadership is making good decisions; communicating those decisions and then seeing those decisions are executed in the midst of uncertainty, ambiguity, complexity, fluidity and disorder. There are lots of ways to lose. A bad decision, regardless of how well communicated and executed will fail. A good decision poorly communicated will result execution failure. Then, there are times when great decisions are clearly communicated and still are not executed. Your mastery of these skills – or the lack thereof – will determine your future. Join Gene Blanton and his guest list of world-class leaders and elevate your ability to Decide-Communicate-Execute.
