By not asking for help you rob people of the feeling of support. You being a lone wolf only makes you a taker in society. We have been groomed by corporations to be taught to be entrepreneurs, self-starters and work independently. But what good does that do when we aren’t able to help each other or learn how to support in an efficient way.
More specifically here are 3 reasons why to ask for support...
I’ve been learning a lot of lessons about leadership and finding the above to be a challenge as I become a better leader.
Where I struggle is if I don’t invoke a purpose/vision and assume people will just help me based on my own work ethic then I will fail. More often then not people will show up uninspired or not at all. The extra work of uninspired workers falls back on the leader who then won’t have time or energy or patience to acknowledge those that do show up others which leads to resentment from the support team and leader and a bad experience.
Where I have success is if I do invoke a purpose/vision for doing something. Even if it’s for something small how can that person feel empowered or fulfilled by supporting me. And showing that by even asking for help and being vulnerable I’m creating an environment for more help and more vulnerability which sets us up for long term success.
My request of you is to really connect with the people on your team, tribe, family, etc. Acknowledge them, be grateful and of course hold them accountable.
That’s being a giver not a taker.
