Following My Own Advice #142

Asking for help. It’s a seldom practiced skill for a hardworking, self-sufficient, proud leader whose identity is wrapped up in what you do. In fact, it’s uncomfortable because of the vulnerable position you’re in. It can feel like an admission of incompetence or weakness.

It’s not the case, and because I often speak about how important it is for leaders to be vulnerable, including practicing asking for help, today, I’m following my own advice.

If you enjoy our content or are following us from a keynote or affiliation with me, I’m asking for your help in spreading the message about our daily Intentional Greatness blog and podcast. If you haven’t read it yet, I share a quick bit of wisdom/truth telling daily Monday through Friday. You can read it via our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram) or have it delivered to your inbox emailing with the word “blog” in the subject line.

In order to help expand our movement of creating Intentionally Great leaders, please share the podcast and blog with your colleagues. You can download the podcast at, and a quick share on social media goes a long way in increasing our views and awareness.

Thank you for being a part of our community. Your commitment to shattering illusions and maximizing success is what motivates me every day, even when I’m the one asking for help!

Thanks in advance for your help growing this community, I am grateful for you and appreciate your help.
