Tired Of Saying ‘Yes’ All The Time? Here’s How To Get Comfortable Saying ‘No’ | Forbes Coaches Council
From the Forbes Coaches Council…
Make Agreements Instead Of Assumptions
Make agreements up front so that everything is clear and you can avoid the extra, “Hey, can you do me a big favor…” awkwardness. The best way to say “no” is to offer a proposed solution. For example, “It’s outside of our original agreement, so let me get back to you with a quote.” A lot of times, people don’t ask to intentionally take advantage, but it’s up to us to set the boundary and honor it.
