Design Yourself 108: How To Ask For Help

Asking for help is one of those things that most of us know we could be better at, but almost as many of us don’t know where to begin to make a change. This week’s podcast is here to help. Sharon breaks down the concept of asking for help into 4 more manageable steps. We troubleshoot together on how to get better at identifying that we need help in the first place, how to go about finding support when we are stumped, how to summon the will and courage to ask for help and then  how to make a specific request that gets us the results for which we are hoping. This is a great episode for anyone who struggles with letting go of control, delegating and burn out.
