認為開口求助等於軟弱?把握三個訣竅,讓你更容易開口尋求協助。

人們通常不開口尋求協助,因為認為這會被認為是軟弱。但你若要成功,就必須要求得到自己需要的東西。下面的訣竅,可讓你更容易開口求助:

先幫助他人,建立自己願意伸出援手的名聲。例如,表示願意協助完成一項小任務,或詢問他人是否需要你幫忙完成某項專案。

弄清楚自己需要什麼協助。如果你需要有人協助手中的專案,請花時間寫下自己的目標。查看其中最重要的目標,並列出實現它所需的步驟和資源。使用這一系列的需求,來建構自己的請求。

聰明地提出請求。很多請求措辭不佳,讓人難以回應。你的請求應該要具體、有意義、行動導向、切合實際、有明確時限。

People often don't ask for help because they think it's perceived as a sign of weakness. But you can't be successful if you don't ask for what you need. So here's how to make it easier: Help others first. Build a reputation as someone who's willing to lend a hand. For example, offer to assist with a small task, or ask if someone could use extra input on a project.

Know what you want to ask. If you need help with a current project, take the time to write down your goals. Look at the most important one, and list the steps and resources needed to achieve it. Use this series of needs to frame your request. Ask smartly. Many requests are so poorly worded that it's difficult to respond. Your should be specific, meaningful, action-oriented, realistic, and time-bound.
