From the must-read book, Compassionate Leadership, is this recommendation about decision making from authors Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter:
Every time you are faced with a difficult decision you can share the nature and tone of your leadership by asking:
- Will this have a positive impact on my colleagues’ genuine happiness and well-being?
- Will this action inspire others in a positive way?
- Will I be proud of this in 10 years?
Let compassionate leadership principles guide you.
