Help Please

24 Oct

Very often in our everyday work life we require assistance from others. Quite often we assume that what we are doing is common knowledge to all and further we assume that what we personally know others know as well.
I’m here to say that most often, none of this is true. What we know we have gain through training and personal experience. Our views and approach to problem solving are not necessarily that of everyone else’s.
As a result when we ask for help and especially if the request comes not as a face to face communication but perhaps through a telephone, and certainly in today’s scenario through emails, the required information takes on a whole different aspect. Our semantics take on a much higher degree of importance.
For one thing we must paint a picture to whomever we are communicating with of the situation. We must also make them aware of any urgency and why. Then if this person is perhaps unfamiliar to us, without giving them our full resume, make them aware of what are strengths are or perhaps what we might understand or even where we fail to comprehend.
Exposing these things up front may allow a much more focus help. Pertinent elements can be addressed first and with a higher degree of competence. Their probing questions can be more poignant to our problem, or where to go for better support.
Good communications will never go out of style. Read my latest article https://dl.dropbox.com/u/19327951/How%20Can%20I%20Help.pdf
