As a leader, it’s critical to make important decisions in a timely manner. You will never have all the data, complete consensus, or a crystal ball. You just need to make the best decision you can with the information you have at the time. However, having a process for making complex decisions can help.

As most parents have learned, late-night conversation around the campfire can open communication lines. Consider those romantic strolls with your first love when you shared your deepest secrets and highest hopes for the future? Or how about those laps around the gym or through the hallways at school with your best friend, sharing what happened on the weekend?

Likewise, leaders have learned that walking loosens the tongue of their team members. Walking and talking go together like leadership and strategy.  How so?

“I’ve been there for almost 17 years,” she whispered, glancing around the room, “I don’t want to leave, but I think I have to.” The Senior Director of Finance looked at me sadly, with the weary awareness of someone who has fought the good fight for far longer that she anticipated. “The backstabbing. The hurtful comments. The threats. It’s such a toxic environment. They have to realize we’re all working harder than we’ve ever worked and doing our very best. My boss can yell at me all he wants, but I’m not going to drive my team into the ground. It doesn’t help anyone to be treated that way. It’s so demeaning. I love my work, but I just can’t do this anymore.”
