- You advertise for a position on your team to be filled. You interview the best applicants. You aren’t impressed. They are OK but you still have doubts. You are under pressure to get someone on board and get the work done.
- You field an enquiry from a potential new client. They have money to spend and needs to satisfy. You go through the process of getting to know them and their challenges. You have a nagging feeling that something’s not right, but there’s a need to generate more business.
- A colleague proposes a joint venture. The opportunity is exciting but the level of commitment is significant and it will require a serious shift in focus and direction for you and your team.
If it is not a ‘hell yes’, then you have probably compromised. You have made the decision for reasons other than what is truly best for the future.
Imagine how much better our teams, our organisations and our relationships would be if we only said yes when it felt like a ‘hell yes’!
