The power of the ask

The power of the ask


The truth is, sometimes we appreciate being asked when there’s vision behind it. What I mean by that is when someone is saying that they believe in us by asking us to do something.


It might be asking someone to step up in responsibility, or to invest in a new skill set. The mistake we make is to assume that if someone’s unlikely to say yes, then it’s not worth asking.

We miss a great opportunity here, because even when someone says no, there’s still power in the ask. Who can you ask around you to step up or step out in someway, even if it’s likely they’ll say no?
