Most professional road cycling teams are made out of 10-20 riders who work together as a team to win a race.
Each team has a captain, the best rider expected to win, while the rest of the crew – the “Domestiques” – are there to support them.
The Domestiques sacrifice themselves to lead and reduce wind drag, offer up their gear when something breaks down, and deliver food and supplies when needed.
The captain only has a chance of winning because they accept the support, nurture, and care from those around them.
To be a successful leader requires us to be good at accepting help from others so that the entire team can win together.
