‘A wise man makes his own decisions; an ignorant man follows the public opinion’ - Grantland Rice
The success of any organisation depends on the effectiveness of the decisions made. There have been many debates on the effectiveness of individual decision-making over group decision-making. My view is that ‘too many chefs spoil the broth’. Despite my strong feelings on this subject, I’m also of the view that you don’t want to build a team where everyone’s in agreement either. Having people to challenge you is something that a dynamic leader should welcome and embrace. After all, if you’re hiring A-players, they’re not there just to be ‘worker bees’.
