Business and Politics Books
No Decisions Managers
A no-decision manager is someone who avoids decision making at every possible turn. These kinds of leaders can make life difficult for subordinates and they can become a catalyst in helping to destroy a business.
No-decision managers survive in all different types of organisations, whether that be public or private, finding themselves in positions of top management. This ultimately means that one day you will be forced to work with one.
Luckily Grant Tait has noticed this. He is the author to the book ‘How To Become a No-Decision Manager’, which goes into detail about these kinds of people.
