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
