Those who can't manage themselves can't be expected to manage anything else either.

James Millar, Author, Building Bridges: The Case for Executive Peer Networks

It’s no surprise that many people avoid professional “networking” activities. As a team of researchers reported in the May 2016 Harvard Business Review: “We know that [networking is] critical to our professional success, yet we find it taxing and often distasteful.” These scholars found that negative feelings toward professional networking were “not simply dislike or discomfort. It was a deeper feeling of moral contamination and inauthenticity.” Strong words, indeed!

Congratulations: You’re at the top of your organization or field. CEO, CFO, chairperson, award winner…

Most executives and high-achievers have a predictable narrative as to how they expect their journey to turn out, from moving up the ranks in their organizations to reaching a coveted position, often with a fancy title and all the perks it entails All the while, they push aside the little voice at the back of their mind saying,: “Nobody can stay at the top or in their dream position forever. Life changes. Businesses change. Retirement happens. Then what?”

Why do some people trust their instincts, push forward and win, while others stumble to erroneous conclusions and then steadfastly defend their bad decisions? Why do some people rush to make bad decisions while others take their time and then make bad decisions? Whether thinking quickly or slowly, we rely on our emotions, mindset, and cognitive abilities to help us make decisions. Then, we open our mouths to let others know what that decision is. Most people would benefit from adding another step to the sequence—one that checks that we are advocating the right decision, not just the one we feel passionate about.
