Precise judgment is a necessary quality in all leaders, whether the president of a nation or the president of a company, and it is crucial these leaders use their sound judgment when evaluating the executive team. The following article proposes a more qualitative model for judging the leadership team. Each team member can be judged based on the suggested four-point scale that consists of valued and non-valued characteristics at each level, along with recommendations for how to proceed. This model could greatly complement quantitative methods of assessment, as it provides a more rounded judgment of the individual to enhance the decision-making process. After all, the currency of leadership is judgment.
