If you’re like many of today’s leaders, saying NO is a challenge.
I get it. You want to help. You want to make a difference. That’s why you are in leadership. Yet, if you say YES to everything – you become ineffective!
What do you do? Learn to say NO!
That’s right-saying NO is a learned skill. And just like every other skill, 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 day he would say no to at least one thing.
· Notice when it’s easier to say NO. Notice when it’s harder to say NO. What are you discovering about yourself?
· Who do you know that is a master at 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 to you,
