Second Captain First Choose
Too many high-need-for-achievement professionals think that they can't ask anyone for help if they're struggling. They need to come across as tough and independent, never "soft" or uncertain. If this sounds like you, you could become isolated and less open to growth and change--and therefore less and less effective. In this chapter, leadership expert Thomas DeLong argues that if you want to overcome your fears and gain the courage to stretch yourself--both as a person and as a professional--you need a support network made up of people who will give you honest, useful, timely advice and feedback. After explaining how to choose respected others who will tell you the truth in a supportive way, DeLong introduces SKS--"Stop doing, Keep doing, Start doing"--as a simple, highly effective tool for eliciting actionable feedback. Vivid personal examples, along with suggestions you can put into practice today, will start you on your way to forming a support network that will make you a stronger and more successful leader. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 11 of "Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success."
