Summary Description

What’s the difference between a great leader and a failure? The defining characteristic of the best leaders is the ability to make good judgment calls. In the face of uncertainty and conflicting demands, often under great time pressure, a leader must make decisions that determine the fate of the entire organization. That’s why judgment is the essence of leadership.

In our summary of Judgment: How Winning Leaders Make Great Calls, by Noel M. Tichy and Warren G. Bennis, you’ll learn a powerful framework for making tough calls, even when the stakes are high and the right path is far from obvious. You’ll discover how to recognize the critical moment before a judgment call, when swift and decisive action is essential, and also how to make sure the call is well-executed.

Tichy and Bennis have each spent decades studying leadership and advising top CEOs such as Jack Welch and Howard Schultz. Tichy is the best-selling author ofThe Leadership Engine, The Cycle of Leadership, and Control Your Destiny or Someone Else Will. Bennis is the best-selling author of On Becoming a Leader, Reinventing Leadership, and Leaders.

Whether you’re running a small department or a global corporation, this summary will help you to evaluate any situation, make the call, and correct it if necessary during the execution phase. It will show you how to handle the overlapping domains of people, strategy, and crisis management. And it will help you to teach your entire team to make the right call more often.
