What are helpful things to do when asking for help?

How to ask for help -- and get a "yes" | Heidi Grant

July 09

There are four things to keep in mind. When you ask for help, be extremely specific about the help you want and why. The second point is avoid disclaimers, apologies, and bribes. The third is to not ask for help over email or text because it feels incredibly impersonal. The last point is when a person agrees to help you, follow up afterwards to show appreciation.
