Mastering the Skill of Asking for Help

with Ashley Usiskin

About This Class

Ever since we lived in communities, we’ve been hard-wired to help each other due to our brains rewarding us with a feel-good oxytocin boost for prosocial acts.

Do you find yourself resistant to asking for help, thinking, “I’ll manage,” or “I don’t want to be a burden”?  By doing this, have you realized you’re not only denying yourself the support you need, but also the chance for your help provider to experience the fulfillment, joy and pride of helping a fellow human being?

Imagine the extraordinary impact on your life and those around you if you mastered the skill of seeking help. To radically enhance your creativity, productivity and mental well-being. To then save time and energy for what’s truly important, such as building stronger, more trusting relationships not only at work, but at home and in your community!

Together we will: 

  • Engage & Learn: Explore our natural inclination to help each other.
  • Boost Self-awareness: Identify your hesitations and learn to overcome them.
  • Gain Motivation: Realize the significant benefits of overcoming these barriers.
  • Become Empowered: Create your own personalized approach to confidently ask for help.
  • Enhance Your Life: Start implementing these skills in your daily routine.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
