Failing is Learning
Ruminations on Leadership

Allison,

I love that this is the topic you decided to explore because I can heavily relate to it. I too have trouble asking for help and often feel that the entire weight of a task should rest on my shoulders, no matter how much I try to remind myself that it’s not. There’s a difficult balance between individuality and teamwork. In order to productively work as a team, we somehow have to think as a group member that can effectively communicate with and encourage our teammates, yet at the same time think as an individual that can bring our own unique, diverse range of ideas to the table. This can be a hard concept for people who consider themselves independent, so we just have to remember that asking for help does not necessarily makes us weak. It just means we want to learn how to become the best versions of ourselves.
