The roundabout rider of decision making!
Imagine you enter a roundabout, keep driving inside it & don't exit?
Annoy everyone else who patiently waits for you. Crazy right?
It's the same when a roundabout rider surfaces in decision making.
They ask questions, they provide advice, they sympathise and yet, there is no decision; blocking action and causing stress. Sometimes they don't know this either (genuinely).
So what can you do about it? 3 things I reckon:
✅Confirm they are indeed the decision maker.
✅Ensure your ask is clear (no illusion of communication)
✅Tell them about their roundabout riding (you choose the words).
Don't tolerate the ride! It'll annoy more than the rider.
Any other ways to help the rider exit?
