As part of their work with Catalyst, which is a non profit leadership consultancy, LauraLynn Jansen, Deb Siverson and Joan Haan discuss how asking for help is linked to leadership.
Too often leaders believe that asking for help is a sign of weakness, when in fact it shows a willingness to be interdependent and collaborative. The discussion continues with a reminder that in this complex world it is difficult to go-it alone, and if we want to succeed we must recognize that we will need the help of others. Another critical consideration is knowing who to ask for help.
