Being new to a job, or not fully experience in a specific task is often an embarrassing situation. Even though your manager has gone through the trouble of making sure that you’re completely trained, it’s not uncommon for some things to slip, and it’s quite simple for you to forget even the slightest process.
Unfortunately, asking management for help leads to a severe feeling of guilt, which leaves you with no real comfortable way to ask. Here are a few ways to live up to the problem you’re having and ask management for help without feeling guilty.
One Mistake is OK
While needing repeated help would be considered unacceptable by management, you need to realize that a manager will understand that the initial feed of information is going to be a lot to swallow as a new employee. Once you understand that, you can feel a little bit more comfortable about asking for help the first time around.
