Be the Boss Over Cancer

Wouldn’t it be great if when you pulled the cancer card it came pre-loaded with a truckload of guaranteed favors in the workplace? If ever you deserved a favor, it’s now, right? Still it never hurts to maximize your chances of getting a “yes.” In this Harvard Business Review blog post, Asking for Favors, Jodi Glickman provides these three keys to asking for a favor in a way that shows that you’re thankful and gets the help you need: 

1. Set the Stage
2. Give a Reason
3. Provide an Escape Clause
