Whether it’s a workload that’s pushed you beyond your limits or a problem that seems impossible to solve, there are times when the best option is to ask your boss for help.

It’s time for a reframe on this topic. Because there are times when asking your boss for help is a clear sign of your strength—not the weakness you fear. Stop harboring your stress and frustration; it’s time to have the conversation you need to have.

You can absolutely ask for help—and keep your stellar reputation intact! Let’s talk about how to ask your boss for help.
