How Good Are You At Saying NO?

How good are you at saying NO?

Saying NO is a challenge for many leaders, especially those in ministry. 

I get it. We want to help. We want to make a difference. That’s why we entered ministry.  Yet, if we say YES to everything – we become ineffective!

What do we do?  Learn to say NO!  That’s right-saying NO is a learned skill.  And just like every other skills, with practice it gets easier.

If saying NO is a learned skill, consider the following:

  • Practice saying NO.  I know one person who has decided that every Thursday he will say no to at least one thing.
  • Notice when it’s easier to say NO.  Harder to say NO.  What are you discovering about yourself?
  • Who has mastered the art of knowing when to say NO and when to say YES? What can you learn from them?
  • What are the guidelines that you will put into place when deciding whether to say YES or NO?

All the best,
