Today I write about the the Controlled Acting person and leader, which helps you indirectly improving your decision making ability. I will explain how you can also benefit from this style if it´s not your natural style of conduct.
2. Controlled Action
acts and thinks persistent, controlled, aims towards projects, confident, reflects, punctual, exact, persevering, correct and systematic.
Let´s get into the details:
PERSISTENT (persevering) acting and thinking:
this leader keeps on acting and thinking and acting in a never ending process of reaching and approaching the next goal…. and then the next goal! This leader actively worked priorly on a step-by-step plan or process which he or she follows on a daily or weekly or monthly basis. This leader has will-power and must be quite resilient. It´s important when working on change with all its consequences.
this action is definied for accounting and auditing which assures a certain achievement. It´s also connected to working efficient and effective. Both are related to controlling your own numbers, starting with TIME (hours or weeks) and then checking the money factor. At this point it has nothing to do with controlling other people, thinking and acting controlled is about your style of conduct. If you choose from alternatives, the controlled leader will have an eye on the numbers and will compare its value with the other alternatives.
AIMING towards PROJECTS:
This person might “sound” restless to you and yes, this style has to do with an action filled personality. Aiming at something new includes the willingness to end the other project. A decider with this ability will be successful, in the long run.
Confidence results from achievement and success unless you carry it in your genes already. Confidence is important when you discuss or look for a new goal, or in case you want to confront yourself with a huge challenge. The goal must be realistically reachable and achievable. Experience helps –
This is time consuming! But view such a time frame as a good investment! To reflect about your past (mistake, goal, experience, partnership) helps you learn for improvement. It helps evaluating alternatives and its risks.
If you pay or decide punctual – in any case – you might avoid a penalty. You decide!
Deciding in an exact manner will help avoiding mistakes and throwbacks.
CORRECT and SYSTEMATICALLY:
Acting and being correct when deciding may avoid surprises! Nobody will (hopefully) blame you when you act and decide in a correct manner. There will be no wind in anybodies sails!
If you prepare a decision process in a systematically way you can use it for all other decision processes which will follow. It helps you and everybody else keeping the time frame of planning short. It´s a cost saving way.
Sounds like the Controlled Acting leader seems to be pretty good prepared when it comes to making decisions! But any controlling needs to be implemented in detail in a decision process. I bet it´s very helpful for your individual decision making!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BE OUTSTANDING.
