Proper judgment is one of the most appreciated characteristics of a leader. This quality is not obtained and then maintained; rather it is based on insight into each situation or person on a daily basis. Right judgments can be made only when we can see into the heart of the problem without our personal interests and feelings getting involved. That is not always easy because with every situation there are personalities involved.
Having right judgment can allow people to have confidence in us if we have a reputation of judging things honestly. Others will be honest with us. This is a cycle that repeats itself, making it easier to get to the truth as people feel safe enough to be transparent as a result of our example. And we will avoid impulse buying and costly mistakes by practicing good judgment.
