Episode 20: Backing Your
Decisions in Business
09 September 2020
A conversation inspired by one of my clients when she asked me for my thoughts on some of her business decisions.
Backing your own decisions can be challenging especially if you’re transitioning from being an employee to a business owner because no one is “signing off” on your work anymore and whatever decisions you make in your business, it falls on you.
But that’s part of business, you have to start thinking of yourself as self starters and trust that you’ve made the best decisions despite the possibility of it being a mistake.
“A leader makes a decision and yes that decision on occasion will be a mistake but they make a decision, they back it and then if they need to go back and rectify something later or change things then they can do that later on but they do really back themselves on that decision.” - Donna Lesa
