It seems in many corporate environments leaders don’t like to ask for help. I know, because I used to be that leader.
When leaders don’t ask for help, often it is because these leaders are trying to look strong. It’s as if showing any weakness might result in bad things.
When it’s needed, and you don’t ask for help one of two things is going to happen:
- You’re going to wrestle with problems or fail at what you want to do
- You’re going to spend too much time and money to attain success
Asking for help
Being a leader does not mean you don’t need help. It took me fifty years to learn about the power in the words: “I need help.”
When you ask for help, you will find yourself surrounded by a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. Success will be far more accessible. Your experience will increase. Your struggles will seem insignificant.
Sounds like creating the conditions for success to me.
You’ve got this.
