When, Why and How to ask for what you want – with Sarah Ludford
February 24 @ 10:00 - 12:30
Could you do with some help? Do you find it easy to ask for the help you need?
Many of us struggle with this. We might be scared of being judged or fearful about the impact on our relationship. Scared of hearing no, or even more scared that you might get a yes. Wow, what if people said yes to our requests for help, what then?
We live in a society where there is an expectation that you should be able to cope on your own and asking for help is seen as weakness. But human beings are interdependent creatures we need each other. I’ll let you into a little secret…. human beings love to help each other. It’s part of our nature to want to support and care for each other and it feels so good to know that you can help someone.
The tricky thing is when we do ask it is often not really clear what we are asking for and that can be hard for others to hear.
In this session we will explore when, why and how to ask for help. We will get clear what we want, look at what gets in the way of asking, get some feedback on our requests and explore what happens if we hear no.
Sarah Ludford works with a process know as Compassionate Communication and supports people to speak and listen from the heart, to improve the quality of their lives and relationships.
