Judgment

How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls

Unknown - 2007
Rate this:
A bold new approach to the art of making tough calls when it really counts

Noel Tichy and Warren Bennis have each spent decades studying leadership and advising top CEOs such as GE's Jack Welch and Starbucks' Howard Schultz. Now, in their first collaboration, these titans of management redefine the essence of leadership as the ability to make consistently good judgments, especially when the stakes are high, information is limited, and the right call is far from obvious. Leaders add most of their value by the quality of their judgments; every other aspect of leadership is secondary.

Judgment clarifies an important concept that is often misunderstood. Many assume that good judgment is an inborn trait, but Tichy and Bennis show that it's actually a skill that can be developed, refined, and nurtured through an organization.

I am not pretty sure which of the two Noel's books I have read, I have enjoyed the most, but this is a master piece. Noel presents the leaders of organizations who have coped with uncertainty when they need to make a difficult decisions and the main differences between the winners and losers. His very close understanding of those companies, provides with an objective and trustable source of information. I specially liked the chapter related with crises, where the companies have to have the CEO's guts to take a smart decision to survive or to be part of the history.
