This Sentence Will Change Your Life

A recent Inc. Magazine article suggests that one of the more powerful statements we can make at work is a statement declaring that we would like some help with something. It needs to be respectful of people's time and something they can do. When a whole team practices this, strengths shared make limitations and constraints less a factor in their performance.

Asking for help is a act of humility, wisdom and validation of other people's value and gifts. Not asking for help is a position of weakness; requests for help are positions of strength.
