At this time of year, I am often reminded of the power of “Thank You.” Thankfulness is a gift that you give not only others, but also yourself. As a woman leader, I actually think I spend a lot of time being aware of this gift. I know that I make a point to say thank you to my team, to my clients, and to my family for supporting me. But, often times, we forget to use the equally as powerful phrase – “I Need Help.”
I, for one, am horrible at asking for help when I need it. Sometimes I think it is part of having a chip on my shoulder in terms of needing to prove to myself and others that I can do it. Sometimes I think it is a result of not wanting to take the time to ask for help. And, sometimes, I think that it is a result of not truly being able to let go. Whatever the reasons, learning to ask for help is an essential part of being a good leader. And, it isn’t lost on me, that our clients are often in the position of needing to ask for help when they may very well want to do it themselves, prove themselves, or save time. As a consulting firm, we are guests in a client’s world. And, that relationship is an important one to respect and cultivate.
Maybe you have a project that you need to get over the finish line by the second quarter, and you don’t have enough staff to project manage this effort. Maybe you have a business process that is exceptionally cumbersome. Maybe your organization is struggling through strategic planning and needs an objective facilitator. Whatever your management consulting need, consider reaching out to Momentum, Inc. and saying, “I Need Help.”
We will be sure to value your business, perform with quality, deliver value, and say “Thank You.”
