    Part 1 of 2: Richard Moran: The Leadership Perils of "Whatever"

    Have you been bothered by someone who responded with "whatever” to you?
    I don't know about you, but I find that response dismissive and disrespectful.
    .
    Bain & Company is a global consultancy whose research has found a consistent correlation between a company's ability to make and execute decisions and its financial performance. Companies that excel at decision effectiveness outperform their peers by a significant margin—over four times the returns to shareholders over 5 years and higher profits.
    .
    Bain's research has revealed some of the typical decision-making mistakes that companies often fall into, each with its own potential pitfalls:
    .
    Perfectionism - Pursuing the 'perfect' decision can often lead to delays and missed opportunities. It's crucial to prioritize timely, well-informed decisions over perfection. 
    .
    Indecision/Inaction—Failing to decide, thinking that not deciding is better than making a mistake. This decision can also have negative consequences.
    .
    Dodging or avoiding difficult decisions - Failing to make tough calls out of fear of the consequences.
    .
