Mayday!

Book Description

Everyone hates asking for help. We're afraid of seeming weak. We think it's an admission of failure. We simply don't know how. So instead we continue to struggle on alone with both day-to-day burdens and serious crises. But, as Nora Klaver shows, we make things much harder on ourselves by not reaching out. Through engaging, often humorous personal stories, Klaver examines why we don't ask for help and shows how changing this counter-productive mindset can enrich us emotionally and spiritually, boost our confidence, and strengthen our relationships.

Mayday! details a 7-step process that takes the fear and intimidation out of asking for help. You'll learn what to ask for, whom to ask, how to ask, and when and where to ask. Chock full of illustrative exercises and real-life examples, Mayday! empowers you to get the help you need and deserve both at work and in your personal life.
