Helping: How to Offer, Give, and Receive Help

#ad
Berrett-Koehler Publishers #ad - Why is it so difficult to provide or accept help? how can we make the whole process easier? In this seminal book on the topic, corporate culture and organizational development guru Ed Schein analyzes the social and psychological dynamics common to all types of helping relationships, explains why help is often not helpful, and shows what any would-be helpers must do to ensure that their assistance is both welcomed and genuinely useful.

All too often, to our bewilderment, our sincere offers of help are resented, resisted, or refused—and we often react the same way when people try to help us. The moment of asking for and offering help is a delicate and complex one, fraught with inequities and ambiguities. Schein helps us navigate that moment so we avoid potential pitfalls, mitigate power imbalances, and establish a solid foundation of trust.

Helping: How to Offer, Give, and Receive Help #ad - Helping is a fundamental human activity, but it can also be a frustrating one. Using examples from many types of relationships—doctors and patients, consultants and clients, definitive analysis of what it takes to establish successful, husbands and wives—Ed Schein offers a concise, mutually satisfying helping relationships.

Berrett-Koehler Publishers #ad - Bestselling author and father of organizational culture studies, Edgar Schein and Peter Schein trail-blaze with a creative perspective on leadership that encourages vulnerability and empathy as a form of strength.

Humble leadership calls for "here and now" humility based on a deeper understanding of the constantly evolving complexities of interpersonal, group and intergroup relationships that require shifting our focus towards the process of group dynamics and collaboration. As organizations face more complex interdependent tasks, leadership must become more personal in order to insure open trusting communication that will make more collaborative problem solving and innovation possible.
