Situational Awareness 101

| December 6, 2007

by Jim Bruce

In “Situational Awareness 101”, John Baldoni points out that “A sound sense of situational awareness is vital to leadership decision making.  A leader must know context (what is happening), circumstance (what has happened) and consequence (what could happen) at all times.”

In this short piece, Baldoni talks about context, circumstance, and consequence and concludes “Ignoring the facts or blindly pursuing goals may end with disastrous consequences.”  It’s enough to cause you to really pause and evaluate the situation.
