Problems and decisions. Those are two things which chew up the majority of a leader’s time. Essentially as leaders our raison d’etre is to solve problems and make decisions; however, sometimes we just do not have the experience necessary to ensure that we have made the right decision for the situation. That’s why sometimes a guide is beneficial and the reason for this episode’s guest.
