Effective Decisions for Leaders

Instructor with Students in Computer Lab

Speak out
Know what you’re about;
Who you are;
And plan to go far.

State your objectives;
Explain with directives;
Let others ask questions;
And offer suggestions.
Affirm what you see;
To set the priority;
Make expectations clear;
And get your team in gear.

Announce any questions;
No questions are dumb questions;
All questions must be thought out;
The importance brought about.

Dare to decide;
Help the team get allied;
Help them have zest;
So they can progress.

Decide who is on your team;
Surround yourself with talent supreme;
Let those closest to the work decide;
Then the team stays in stride.

Put team members in proper roles;
Then make sure there are controls;
Focus on character and drive;
With these qualities the team will thrive.

About Mark Shields

Mark works in the Information Systems Department for an Insurance Company. He volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church and runs the 10:50 worship service computer. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. You’re invited to join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
