Leading Quietly by Joseph L. Badaracco, Jr. Name: Khushbakht Vaka ERP: 11794
In his book “Leading Quietly”, Joseph Badaracco highlights the importance of silent decision- making. Instead of emphasizing on the greatness of top management, Badaracco focuses on ordinary, daily decisions of middle and senior management that undermine an organization’s success. Badaracco calls them “quiet leaders”. Rather than making rash, sweeping decisions, these people would take small, responsible steps. Badaracco proposes eight strategies for effective decision-making. Each strategy is explained by one or more case studies. 1. Don't Kid Yourself. Badaracco advises managers to avoid making rash decisions. One must evaluate all possible outcomes prior to making a decision. An ideal decision may not be a rational one. For example, firing a veteran employee for sexual harassment might be the right thing to do. But it may be also be tricky. The veteran employee may enjoy considerable clout due to his long stay in the organization. It might be practical to force the employee to resign. However, that can only be done by gathering considerable evidence. Once irrefutable evidence is presented to the accused employee, he/she is likely to comply and resign without resistance.
