Crisis or Inspiration?

Posted by Jon Treanor

Senior executives and high achievers are unaware that they are operating on autopilot; personal decision making is a ceaseless engine grinding the life out of the creativity in all of us. Quality of thought & reasoning is becoming harder to maintain, particularly in today’s fast frenetic and sometimes furious world. We have developed an over-reliance on assumptions, with the internet demanding instant decision making, I personally believe we are in danger of eroding our human values. We are all suffering from decision fatigue.

We need to constantly invest in our own personal development and growth therefore we need to review our qualities and do the check list on ourselves. Particularly if we are an aspiring achiever or we have made it, what are the consistent qualities that make a good leader, someone to aspire to, a high achiever, and an inspirer?
