Harnessing The Power of Logic and Deduction

Good managers and leaders have a style of decision making that allows them to reflect and analyse their work and from this to identify and remember trends and issues as they emerge. In this way learning builds upon learning and a clear insight then can be used for future decisions.

This broadly breaks down into three distinct approaches;

  1. Logical Arguments; moving from the specific to the general and issues based on experience or observation.
  2. Deductive Arguments; beginning with the general and ends with the specific and issues based on laws, rules, or widely accepted principles.

The nest time you are called upon to make a significant decision pause and reflect upon the two approaches and focus in and out of the Logical/Deductive continuum to get to the best practical solution AND to get yourself ready to build upon this decision or practical solution in the future.

Good Luck!
