What do we mean by indecision and how can we recognize it in our workplace?
It is the lack of energy to make relevant decisions at a given time or situation. It is a lack of conviction to choose the path to be followed in a timely manner.
Indecision can be recognized in the workplace because a lack of motion is perceived, there is a sense of stagnation. The processes of work and communication do not flow as they should. The chaos appears and the dynamism is lost due to bottlenecks caused by people who retard the decision making due to several factors like lack of experience, knowledge, fear or simply negligence.
When indecision is highly present in an #organization, it loses its agility and the energy of its collaborators focuses on resolving problems in a reactive way, losing the #proactivity to anticipate the challenges and opportunities that they will find along the way. It is also easy to find the Hamster's syndrome running on the wheel, wasting its energy without getting anywhere.
How can we transform indecision into conviction?
#Indecision can lead to "analysis paralysis." Fortunately, there are alternatives to act decisively towards achieving your goals and objectives.
1. Make a stop on the road.
Ask yourself: What is happening in my current reality and what would be the consequences of continuing in this same position without changing?
2. Ask for feedback. An objective self-analysis can be improved by getting feedback from your bosses, colleagues, collaborators, consultants, clients and others who know the context of the situation you are in.
If you dare to ask for their views when making sense and you are genuinely open to listen, you will get valuable data and information to manage the situation in an efficient and successful way.
3. Choose a path and act decisively towards your goals.
And remember that being paralyzed without making a decision can make you lose great opportunities for your professional development. Decide to move on, there is no doubt that you can expect valuable learnings along the way.
4. Stay focused on achieving your goals and objectives always end up making a difference.
Do not give up or distract yourself to reap the fruit of your effort.
5. Celebrate your achievements and give recognition to those who accompany you throughout your daily journey.
Being grateful will strengthen your connection with the people you collaborate to achieve your shared goals.
