I've been studying high performers and top performers for approaching 20 years now. Lots of things have surprised me about how top performers do things differently. But quite possibly the most surprising is how high performing people ask for help. It’s completely different than the average person. I found that most people don't think about this as a skill set. What I've learned though by studying top performers, there are actually very specific things that they do when they go to ask for help. I want to be able to teach you these to you so that you can be able to get the type of help that you need so I've created a formula with five very simple parts to show you how to do this and break it down.
Before I show you those five key parts of how high performers ask for help, let me ask you a question:
What do you think is the secret to why high performers get help so easily (and we enjoy helping them) and why it’s so painful to have to help many other people?
Is it that they are genetically endowed with likeability, or that we’re just biased as human beings to want to help people who are already doing well?
Maybe, but I don’t think so.
