Assess Your “Edge” Quotient

Jack Welch has a theory about the 4E’s of leadership.  He looks for leaders who demonstrate Energy, they Energize others, they have Edge, and they Execute well.  Of these, edge is the hardest to define.  His words:

“Individuals with edge have a competitive spirit and know the value of speed.  They’re confident; they know when to green-light or red-light a project or acquisition.  They don’t get paralyzed by paradox.”

If you’re not happy with your edge quotient, challenge yourself by setting tighter deadlines on decision making.  Are there any projects you are mulling over that you could move to a decision today?
