What you will learn:

The last two years have been hard — unpredictably, unavoidably, and unimaginably hard. And as we face an ever-changing world of work, we know that the only way that our leaders and teams can grow and succeed is by helping one another. And yet, too many of us in our professional (and personal) lives don’t know exactly what kind of help we need, or how to accept help without feeling vulnerable, or how to offer the best kind of help to those we see struggling. 

Deborah Grayson Riegel has addressed this surprisingly complex topic in her bestselling book, “Go To Help: 31 Strategies to Offer, Ask for, and Ask for Help”. It’s for professionals at all levels who want to develop their “help-fluency”: becoming adept at offering a wide range of helping strategies (not just their go-to approach), and being willing to ask for help for themselves. In this session, we will explore what makes offering, asking for, and accepting help in the workplace a set of superpowers that everyone needs to cultivate, and dig into 5 surprising “helping strategies” that you didn’t even know you needed!

This workshop can be accompanied by copies of the book for your team members.
