Decision making is the task which leaders are tasked with the most during their day. Unfortunately most leaders are not trained how to properly make decision and therefore end up simply “going with their gut” and not necessarily making an informed decision. Thus, as a leaders you should never go with your gut but learn how to make proper decisions.
