It seems pretty natural for managers and executives to revert to coaches, advisors or friends for help when they need it the most.
That’s typically when we are dissatisfied with the current job and a new opportunity presents itself or, more simply, when a headhunter calls and we are too curious to say no. In other instances, we may seek advice because we lost our job or are ready to reenter the workforce.
While asking for additional perspective is smart, we often take a very reactive and last minute approach that may limit the benefits of the advice received.
