When do you use the collaborative vs the make a decision now approach?
There is a lot of industry press about the new way to make decisions with your direct reports is to convince, influence, urge.
I am learning these methods at the non-profit where I curently work. A lot of good ideas are not implemented because unless the whole team agrees nothing gets done. I find this approach to be a little frustrating.
My 'team' laughingly refers to themselves as gerbils - they stay in their own little world and do not go anywhere fast. Nobody really has a background in IT except that they have been threre three years.
Any suggestions on how to turn their attitude around? When do you stop urging and just make a decision?
