How to Say ‘No’ at Work
A recent Microsoft trends in work report showed that 40 billion more emails were sent in February 2021 than the previous February, due to the increase in remote working. No wonder so many of us are feeling burnt out and that our work/life boundaries are all askew!
We’re happy to say our latest ‘How To’ episode is jam-packed with tips on how to appropriately say “No” at work, whether you’re an employee or work for yourself.
We’re not saying it’s always right or easy to say “No” but what we do observe in our leadership work around the world is that some people say “Yes” way more than they need to and can be taken advantage of.
If you think this might be you, then don’t miss this episode where you’ll learn:
- The reasons why we often find it hard to say “No”
- Great responses you can try when asked out of the blue to do something for someone
- A useful framework one professional speaker and author uses to work out what to say “No” to; and
- An intuitive way to figure out what your true priorities are.
So before you reply to any more emails 😉, enjoy this episode!
