About Me

Hi–I’m Satyajit Rout. I help organizations, founders, and emerging leaders improve the quality of their decisions. Over time I’ve realized that making better decisions at work permeates all areas of our lives. I hope it’ll be the same for you.

Testimonials

Decentralising decision making continues to be one of the most significant challenges for a Founder and Leadership Team. Satyajit helped us deep dive into the dispositions and the roadblocks that impact decision making. It has significantly helped in building agility across the organisation.

- Mainak Roy, Founder and CEO of Simple Education Foundation

Your one-stop-shop guide to hone your decision making skills. No matter where you are in your career, or what type of problem that you're facing, the decision making frameworks offered here will help build both the quality of your decision outputs and velocity of decision making. One of my favorite callouts that Satyajit mentions is Jeff Bezos' framing of decisions as one-way doors (non-reversible and highly consequential) vs. two-way doors (reversible, and potentially not as consequential). If you're someone who likes to constantly improve yourself like me, this ebook is for you. Grab a cup of coffee, your favorite notebook, and dive right in.

- Mike Alcazaren, Senior Technical Product Manager - Sustainability, Amazon

The clarity of thoughts that Satyajit had while explaining the situations stood out the most. The situation discussed were very relevant and allowed a moment of deep personal reflection for me.

Things I Believe In

"The problem isn’t our people. It’s not our leaders either. It’s our operating system. Get that right, and the organization runs itself."

- Aaron Dignan

Founder of The Ready and author of Brave New Work

Things I Don’t Believe In

The inefficiency is the point of doing the thing most meaningful to you.

Independence is a poor goal in adult life. Interdependence is a far better one.

When someone in your team says they want to do new things, they don’t want that.

SMART goals can cause terrible damage to your team and org.

Low-hanging fruits carry the least juice while enduring the most gravity; the highest fruits are the exact opposite.

Someone who appears too lazy to change is most likely too exhausted.

AI will not leave us jobless.

In most companies, hiring talent mimics buying a boring car.

Problem prevention beats problem solving any day of the week.

Decision framing is the single biggest exec skill that is lacking across the board.

Helping someone understand themselves better always beats giving them feedback.

Bottling our feelings doesn’t help; neither does talking about them.

In almost any negotiation, Win-Win or No Deal is better than Win-Lose.
