In 'Flying Without a Net,' Thomas DeLong explains how to draw strength from vulnerability. First, understand the forces that escalate anxiety in high achievers and the unproductive behaviors you turn to for relief. Then adopt practices that give you the courage to 'do the right things poorly' before 'doing the right things well.'
Drawing on his extensive research and consulting work, DeLong lays out:
- Roots of high achievers' anxiety: fear of being wrong and lack of a sense of purpose, and a craving for human connection
- Destructive behaviors we adopt to relieve our anxiety: busyness, comparing ourselves to others, and blaming others for our frustrations
- Behaviors we must adopt to gain strength from vulnerability: putting the past behind us and seeking honest feedback
Packed with practical advice and inspiring stories, 'Flying Without a Net' is an invaluable resource for all leaders seeking to thrive in this Age of Anxiety.
