Effective leaders constantly evaluating decisions


In response to “Shutdown a reminder of grade school civics class,” I would choose dysfunctional leadership, which touches on all parts of society from leaders in federal, state and local government to managers and c-level executives in enterprises and institutions.

Effective leaders constantly assess and make decisions, which produce the best outcomes for the teams, entities and organizations they’re leading. If they don’t have the answers, they seek out advice from experts. They energize citizens, employees, customers and stakeholders, and proactively respond to a potential threat be it pressure from competitors, reduced operating income, natural disasters or perceived terrorism.
