We all have strengths and weaknesses, the important thing is to recognise them and acknowledge that sometimes we need to call on others to help.
Asking and accepting help is a good thing and doesn’t mean you’re a lesser person for asking.
This is true not only in our personal lives, but also in our roles organisations, and perhaps even more so within some organisations in the non-profit sector.
Some people starting out with a non-profit will have the skills for the job they are doing, but they may not have the understanding of the sector, how things can be very different to the for-profit world. And, this can also be true for those overseeing an organisation.
If you have doubts about anything to do with your organisation, your role or the sector in general, don’t be afraid to put your hand up and ask for help. Something I remember being told years ago, was there’s only one dumb question – the one you didn’t ask.
So ask ask and ask some more if you have any doubts about your organisation, your role or your organisation. People will respect you for asking.
