4 Key Strategies to Overcome the Fear of Asking for Help

A step-by-step learning process focused on key takeaways:

  • 01 Reinforce Your Priorities

    You're measured by the end results of a goal or initiative you were a part of, not the details in between. Get crystal clear on what these objectives look like and focus on what it will take to achieve the desired result.

  • 02 Identify What Type of Guidance You’re Looking For

    If you’ve made it as far as realizing that you need outside help, it’s your responsibility to identify what type of help it is you’re looking for. This context not only helps you when framing your ask but helps the person you’re asking to present a clear recommendation for the next steps.

  • 03 Learn How to Ask For Help Effectively

    You’ll want to align the problem/type of guidance you’re looking for with someone who can actually move you forward. This means selecting someone who has first-hand experience with a similar situation or piece of work.

  • 04 Follow Up With Results

    Once you’ve gone past the “ask for help” stage, follow up with whoever helped you and let them know how everything turned out. This is the step that most professionals skip over and actually lowers their chance of getting repeat help on future work.

This course is for anyone who wants to...

  • Understand why asking for help benefits your team and your role.

  • Stop taking on too many projects and responsibilities.

  • Break free of the mindset that asking for help makes you a weak leader.
