responsibility to determine what’s best for the company. You need to analyze
the consequences of your actions and make up your mind. The point is that
people count on whatever decision you make, so you need to take a stand.

of the risks
It’s normal for
any decision you make to have tough consequences. Regardless of which way you
go, you will face repercussions. You will anger some people. You will take
major risks. If you fear about the possibilities, you will most likely end up
remaining indecisive. You have to remember that as a leader, you have to make
the tough call and face the possible consequences.

decide alone especially on significant things. You need people to guide you and
provide you with information so that you can decide the right way. You also
need researchers who will provide you with concrete evidence and its
interpretations. You will feel more confident with whatever your final decision
would be if your advisers guided you in the process.

position in the company, you should have asked yourself first if you
were the right person for the job. You can’t be a good leader unless you’re
certain of yourself and what you’re capable of doing. If you doubt your
capacity to lead, any decision would be difficult for you to make.

lead. If you allow them to dictate what your leadership will become, it’s easy
for you to fail. You will keep doubting yourself in all turns. The worst part
is that these people are not after the best interest of the company. If you
allow them to dominate you, it’s not going to be helpful at all.

understand why you’re an indecisive leader, it’s time for you to change how you
view yourself and the power you hold. You also have
to stay tough because you will face more decisions in the future.
