Q: Whose hands hold you up that you've ignored or taken for granted?
Done any crowd-surfing lately? Yeah, me neither. But, you know what it is, right?
Usually, it's some guy at a rock concert who starts by jumping onto the top of a packed crowd. If done right, the members of the crowd all raise their hands to hold him up and help him "surf" through the mass of people. It's generally safe but can feel pretty risky (or, so I've heard).
You probably don't get much opportunity for crowd surfing in your worklife ... or do you? Consider the many people who have a stake, personally and professionally, in your success: team members, board members, family, customers, vendors. These "stakeholders" can hold you up as you flow from one task or challenge to another.
Held aloft by those with a stake in your success. That's quite an image, isn't it? Risky? It's only risky when their hands aren't there to support you.
