About the book

Amazon editors named it one of the top 100 leadership and success books to read in a lifetime.

 

Even the brightest among us are worried when faced with the omnipresent danger of job loss and change. As a result, we've hunkered down and closed ourselves up to fresh challenges. We and our companies suffer as a result of this reaction, yet we are afraid of making ourselves even more exposed by making mistakes when learning something new.

 

Thomas DeLong shows how to take power from vulnerability in his book Flying Without a Net. To begin, learn about the factors that cause anxiety in high achievers, as well as the unproductive practices you use to cope. Then, before "doing the right things well," establish routines that give you the fortitude to "do the right things poorly."

 

DeLong sets out the following points based on his considerable research and consulting work:

  • Anxiety in high achievers stems from a fear of being wrong, a lack of purpose, and a desire for human connection.
  • Negative coping mechanisms such as busyness, comparing ourselves to others, and blaming others for our frustrations.
  • The habits we need to develop in order to acquire strength from our vulnerability: Leaving the past in the past and seeking candid feedback

 

Flying Without a Net is an excellent resource for all leaders seeking to succeed in this Age of Anxiety, with practical advice and inspiring experiences.
