Raise Your Hand
Millennials experience burnout a lot. That’s largely because it’s not in their nature to seek out support. Worse, when they’re overwhelmed, many of them feel inclined to tackle their problems alone. That’s why transformational speaker, mentor, and coach Robert A. Belle wrote Raise Your Hand, a frank, compassionate guide that empowers young professionals, showing them why it’s important to ask for help when they’re stressed and exactly how to do it. In this book, Belle explains that doing everything by yourself doesn’t make you look competent to your peers; it just bogs you down, eventually leading to exhaustion. Belle shows readers exactly when, where, and how to find help. And along the way, he cites recent scientific studies, personal life experiences, and real-world conversations he’s had with his millennial coaching clients. Raise Your Hand doesn’t provide generic career development advice, the kind that touts the importance of exercising, journaling, or meditating to avoid burnout. Instead, the book addresses the specific obstacles millennials face when they’re stressed—especially post-pandemic, with the introduction of remote and hybrid working models. And it equips readers with detailed methods for shattering stress, including how to identify your emotions, communicate your needs, and find the correct help.
Reviews
International Review of Books

A detailed and thought-provoking journey on what prevents us from asking for assistance from others, taking into account both personal and professional experiences we may (and probably will) find ourselves in the midst of as we go through life. 

In particular, I thoroughly enjoyed the WIIFM, an acronym for What’s in it For Me?  From the perspective of the person who is being ASKED for help, not the person who is DOING the asking. The author makes it clear that this does not imply a quid-pro-quo type of situation but simply a way of communicating with others when we need their assistance.   Being respectful, considerate and mindful of how you approach others can mean the difference between someone offering their help or simply saying they just don’t have the time.

Approached correctly, the person who is too busy to lend a hand could still offer valuable advice and even recommendations to others who may be in a better position to help you out.  It’s all in learning, firstly, to ask and secondly, how to ask.
