(DGIwire) – For CEOs, decision-making is one of the key responsibilities of the job. But making the right decisions can be a tricky process: some require methodical planning while others need to be made very quickly. Nicholas Clark, CEO and Director of Alexium International, a specialty chemicals manufacturer, has valuable insights on this topic and recently shared some of them in an article on CEO.com. According to Clark, there are four things to remember to guide the decision-making process:
“No CEO is ever going to make the right call 100 percent of the time,” Clark says. “It is not uncommon for them to struggle with the responsibility—but keeping these points in mind can help significantly.”
Clark puts his insights into practice at Alexium, which develops next-generation chemicals with the goal of balancing fire protection properties with ecological safety. Its processes and products are intentionally designed to meet exacting requirements for safety and environmental sustainability. For example, Alexiflam NF is specifically designed for cotton and cotton blends often found in products such as workwear, apparel and upholstery. Alexium also developed a chemical solution designed for its military division called Alexiflam FR. In addition to uniforms, Alexium’s chemistries have been developed to protect military tents, backpacks, tactical gear and accessories.
“By adhering to the four insights I’ve summarized, making those critical decisions will not seem so daunting to CEOs in the course of business,” Clark adds.
