A simple protocol for learning, skill sharing, and building connections, with respect for people’s autonomy.
Ask someone, “would you be willing to help me with …?” The person asked answers with a simple “yes” or “no”.
- if the request is declined, the person asking accepts the answer without negotiation or inquiry
- if the request is unclear, inquire for more information
- if you accept a request for help, support your peer in the best way you can
