Is Needing Help a Sign of Weakness?

Written By: Catherine Morgan | Comments Off on Is Needing Help a Sign of Weakness?

If you’re overworked and under resourced in your job or business, you might think that is just the way it is, or has to be. Kristeen Barth says, “There is so much we can do as individuals and we have more power than we realize.”

You might feel like asking for help will be perceived as a sign of weakness. This is a big block for people, especially managers and founders.

In “Evolving Working Ep 3: Be an Innovator in Your Own Life with Kristeen Barth,” we explore some ways you can ask your team (or manager) for help that can work well and get you some much-needed relief.

Kristeen Barth began her career in IT and later pursued coaching certification. Over time, she was able to move to HR and work in leadership development. She coaches clients on having a healthier relationship with work, including identifying limiting beliefs and inner “saboteurs” that can block forward progress.

Women’s empowerment expert Susan Eckstein and I talk with Kristeen Barth about:

  • What stories you may be telling yourself (and how you can write a different story)
  • How to set boundaries at work with your boss and team
  • How to stop “shoulding” and “wronging” yourself
  • How to design a life that works for you
  • How to ask for what you want

In short, we don’t get what we don’t ask for.
