Asking for Help. Getting the Support You Need Without Looking Weak November 20, 2019

Asking for Help

Getting the Support You Need Without Looking Weak

Sometimes we all need a helping hand.

We all need help at work from time to time, but it’s not always easy to say so. No matter how far you’ve come in your career, you may worry about seeming incompetent, weak, or simply annoying if you ask for assistance.

But seeking support isn’t a weakness. In fact, it’s often the difference between failure and success. It can prevent costly or embarrassing mistakes, and mark you out as someone with self-awareness, confidence, and an understanding of shared goals.

What’s more, drawing on other people’s skills can benefit the helper, and your wider organization, too.

In this article, we’ll look at how and when to ask for help at work, and how to do it right.

Dear Alumni,

We are happy to share with you this good news published in the Jamaica Gleaner, Saturday October 28th, 2017. As you may know, since taking office this year January 2017, our President, Prof. Stephen Vasciannie has been leading the advocacy to end discrimination against UTech, Jamaica law faculty graduates who wish to pursue further studies at the Norman Manley Law School, housed on the UWI, Mona Campus. Below is a positive response from our Government.

Kindly support our UTech, Ja advocacy by circulating this widely across all your social media sites, and by email, as well as commenting. We look forward to a favourable outcome for all UTech, Ja Law Student Alumni,

Reid Eyeing Changes To Gain Entrance To Norman Manley Law School

The Government will be engaging in discussions with stakeholders to resolve issues surrounding entrance to the Norman Manley Law School (NMLS), located at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI).

Education Minister Ruel Reid said that Cabinet is in agreement that the current mode of admission to the law school should end, as it is not equitable and was also discriminatory.

To this end, Reid is to work with the Attorney General, the Minister of Justice, the General Legal Council and the University of the West Indies (UWI) to give effect to the directive.

Dear UTech Alumni,

 

Can we help each other?

 

We’d like to think so!

 

But just to be sure, if you don’t mind us asking….

 

  • Would it help to boost your confidence, if you were sure you had a well crafted, value adding resume and/or LinkedIn Profile, which clearly and impressively answers the No. 1 question in a Hiring Manager’s mind “What value will this candidate add to my organization?”
  • Would you feel more hopeful if you had someone to help you develop a job search or career management strategy so you could get on with your life…with better fit between who you are and what you do, plus better compensation-focus-joy-peace?
  • Would it mean a lot to you to be able to handle this…wait…period [the wait to find a job, or the wait to find a better job] without feeling fearful, angry, anxious and uncertain?

If You Answered “Yes!” to Any of the Questions

Then we can definitely help each other!
