This document contains four mini-case studies. These scenarios enable to instructor to lead students in a discussion that compares what is required to exhibit ideal decisiveness in each setting, including accounting for the diverging perspectives of constituents.


Starter comment: This session can help students think through decisiveness and its extremes, and what decisiveness looks like in everyday circumstances rather than in the typical domains to which we normally apply decisiveness. This is good preparation for practicing decisiveness when using the Leadership Workout app.
