Everyone needs to ask for help at some point. When you are about to do this, follow four steps:
- Summarize the details you found.
- Be clear about what you think should happen.
- Be clear about what’s really going on.
- Be specific about why you think it should work differently.
By following these steps, it is very likely that you will come to a solution without even asking for help. This approach promotes a holistic view of problems.
