Learning To Lead
Leadership is the bedrock that holds a business together. Yet, so few organizations take the time to actually grow leadership skills. Leaders aren’t born, they are grown and they need the right tools and the right feedback in order to take their leadership skills to the highest levels. With the world moving at such a fast pace and every position demanding results from day one, how are you supposed to develop into a great leader?
On this episode of The Big Picture Business Podcast, Dominica and Rory interview Matthew Confer who is here to answer that question. He is Vice President of Strategy at Abilitie, a leadership development company that specializes in interactive online simulations, team-based business competitions, and virtual mini-MBAs.
By using business simulations instead of lectures, leaders are put to the test in real-world team-based competitions and get debriefed on where they have opportunities to improve and where they did great. Matthew shares his 3-step decision-making framework so that you can make the right decision in your business or organization no matter what curveball you are thrown and be seen as the top-level leader you are.
“If you want to be a successful decision-maker, first force yourself to think of the ways you’ll fail.” – Matthew Confer
“You’ve got to look at both sides of the situation in order to be able to make a proper and informed decision.” – Rory Carruthers
“We make thousands of decisions every single day in business and life.” – Dominica Lumazar
