Good post and what I needed to hear right now. I have just had a week where everything I coded seemed to be wrong. I get real anxious about pulling people away from their work to help me.

Team, we succeed and fail together.

If it becomes about an individual who has been established in the team. Then firstly the management are to blame, then the team.

At the very least the team lead should support you.

The first thing I ask of new reports is to ask questions.

I know they need to learn, so ask questions and learn.

If the team is unwilling or incapable of supporting, this is another sign of a poor working environment.
