How to say no with confidence
/

The day I became VP, my boss pulled me aside and said the following:

“The higher up you go, the more trade-offs you’ll need to make”

Most employees struggle with saying no, not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t know how to.

Today’s podcast talks about two frameworks that will help you say no to projects that don’t matter, so you can say yes to projects that do.

🔑 Framework #1: Saying no to the boss

Here’s a little secret – It’s ok for you to say no to your boss occasionally. However, there’s a wrong way and a right way. I’ve put together a 3-part framework that’s going to help you say no to your boss and look influential while doing it.

🔑 Framework #2: Saying no to a coworker

Nothing messes up a day like a last-minute zoom invite. Sometimes, these calls are important. Most of the time, they’re not.

I’m sharing a 3-part framework customized for your co-workers. Now you get to say no without all the guilt.
