A trait I often see in weak leaders is that they’re afraid to ask for help. They don’t want to be seen as needing help from anyone.
Leading in this way is dangerous. We can’t lead alone.
We must stand on the shoulders of others who have gone before us.
Leading Alone Isn’t Worth It
Leading alone is a bad idea. I hope you know that.
We run into all sorts of trouble when we decide we don’t need anyone else. Emotional turmoil to exhaustion to depression, these are the results of deciding to be a one-man show.
We also run into problems in the area of knowledge.
I built my talents on the shoulders of someone else’s talent.
I know I don’t know everything there is to know about leadership. And, if that’s the case, I know you don’t know everything there is to know about leadership either.
