Sometimes it’s more important for the leader to know what he won’t do than what he will. In the decision process, one may consider multiple options. Three may be viable, while another may be lethal. The job of the leader is not to choose the “right” option (as there may be more than one). The job of the leader is to make certain his team does NOT choose the lethal option, and that whichever of the other options is chosen, it fits consistently within the previous set of decisions.
