Quite often people find it challenging to ask for help and  assistance from colleagues or friends in carrying out work assignment either in the office or at home.

The following are some of the reasons why people do not ask for help;

  • Fear of delegation and losing control
  • High degree of arrogance
  • Fear of loss of job to other people
  • They feel they are the most competent to carry out the work
  • Asking for help may be a sign of incompetence on their part
  • Saving of resources of the organization
  • Feeling the people to delegate to are incompetent
  • Possibility of losing credit for the final product
  • No time for  delegating to someone and explaining how to go about the assignment
  • No team spirit


Tips on how to enhance your capacity in asking for help

  • Developing  team approach to delivering an assignment
  • Knowing  that you have limited time in a day and you cannot therefore do everything
  • Surrounding  yourself with right people to delegate to


Asking for help is not a sign of weakness but instead a sign of strength.  Delegating  work  to other people  will release  you for  work  like supervision which cannot be competently done by  most  people.
