Do you find yourself wondering how to assign blame every time something goes wrong? Many smart, accomplished professionals find it difficult to hear that they've made a mistake or that they haven't met expectations; that they may need to change to do better next time. Blaming others is an easy way out--but it may be keeping you from the reflection and self-assessment that allow you to learn, change, and grow. In this chapter, organizational behavior expert Tom DeLong explores the anxieties and assumptions--many of them common to high-need-for-achievement individuals--that underlie our need to deflect blame when things go wrong. Filled with vivid examples, self-assessment questions, and practical advice, this chapter is a virtual how-to manual for rising above the blame game and, in the process, bringing you personal and professional rewards. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 8 of "Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success."
