  托福范文>Example Essay by Jeenn Lee Hsieh 谢振礼:

  Key to success of a good leader is making decisions in timely fashion, probably with a mixed style of being quick in some cases and slow in other cases. Depending on a real situation, a decision can be made fast or not so fast in order to achieve the expected outcome. The best leader is supposed to know which of the two approaches is better, each having its advantages and disadvantages.

  Many effective leaders are "decisive" and they choose to make decisions rapidly without spending too much time on asking ideas from other people. These leaders usually do not struggle with decision-making and do not lose time when opportunities arise. Rather, using their influence or positional power, they have the intuition to decide and the courage to act quickly, leaving room for a margin of error if necessary for correction. To them, making decisions slowly sounds counter-intuitive when the changing environment in which people are working is moving faster and faster. No wonder, they prefer making decisions faster, thinking that very fast and roughly right decision-making should replace long deliberations that seem precise and slow. Of course, the speed versus accuracy in decision-making is a matter of leadership style, but it is arguable whether or not weighing various options might start weighing a leader down because opportunities pass by, never to return.

  That being said, effective leadership is about more than appearing "decisive" when decision-making is based on expert knowledge and valuable information obtained from other people. By adopting this "participative" approach, leaders seek to understand a situation before making judgments about it, obviously with the purpose of reducing the risk of failures. To know more about what is required to make a better decision, a leader may ask an additional question, consult one additional person, and consider one more potential impact. The effect of engaging others in the decision-making process is that, even when a leader is taking his/her own ideas, people seem to have been led to feel that they have been part of the decision-making process and give their support accordingly. In short, spending time to build other people's ideas into decision-making can make the process more efficient.

  In analysis, when it comes to evaluating leadership, there are both benefits and drawbacks to making decisions quickly or slowly. While good decisions is critical for any good leader, it is important not to hold a leader back. At the same time, leaping into a decision too hastily should not be the solution, either.
