    How To Say NO -019

    Do you know how to say “no”? The truth is, we all fall short in this department because we want to be liked. This is especially true for women who are socialized to nurture, to make peace, and to smooth things out, to say YES even when we really want to say NO. In this episode, we’ll explore my 5 “How to say NO” scenarios and you’ll learn that when you agree to do things that don’t belong on our plate, it overflows and instead of looking like a great team player, you appear scattered, overwhelmed and over your head. In fact, saying when “no” is the correct answer in an important part of becoming a leader. Hit that download button and you’ll be saying “no” in no time.
