Decision Making

There is a significant failure rate in the first year for new executives running a business unit for the first time. The responsibilities are much greater , the promises are bigger, and the consequences of success or failure have a much bigger impact on the organization as a whole. If you are looking to advance your career to the executive or “C” level, being properly prepared for the challenge is crucial. Not only is there the risk of failure, but success, garnered through the “working-harder” strategy, can often result in burnout as well as extreme sacrifices of health, family, and personal life.
