How can leaders make good decisions when under pressure? My guest is leadership coach Dr Carol Kauffman. She is on the faculty at Harvard, where she is the Founder of the Institute of Coaching and is the co-author of a new book called ‘Real-Time Leadership: How to Find Your Winning Moves When the Stakes are High’.
With leaders increasingly having to take decisions quickly and under heavy scrutiny, getting things right is not always easy. On the face of it, leaders ought to be able to rely on experience or gut instinct to see them through. But as news headlines constantly remind us, people in leadership positions can and do get things badly wrong.
In Real Time Leadership, Carol and her co-author David Noble introduce a framework called MOVE that can help leaders to make better decisions in challenging times. When the stakes are highest, how can leaders be at their best? How can they master the moment, generate options, and quickly evaluate them before acting? The MOVE framework allows leaders to formulate strategies for what they can do when making decisions under pressure so that when the time comes, they have a clear set of options.
Even if you’re not in a leadership position, the MOVE framework and what Carol has to share is just as relevant to you. Because we’re all required to make decisions at difficult times, whether or not we hold a formal leadership position. Although the context might be different, the challenges are the same.
