Last week I was feeling stuck on a problem. I churned on it for a couple of days, not finding a solution. I was frustrated with myself as it shouldn’t have been so difficult.
Then, I asked for help. That’s when things started shifting, and I quickly got past the problem.
When you ask for help, you invite perspectives, creativity, and possibility. Asking for help is a powerful tool in life.
In your one-on-one meetings, start asking when they last asked for help. Doing so will help them see that asking for help isn’t a bad thing.
The amount of time people spend stuck on a problem is inversely proportional to how much and quickly they ask for help.
Make it OK and even expected to ask for help.
You’ve got this.
