Thumbs up how to say NO at work - December 8th, 2006



SAY NO AND LET GO


1. Observe why other people say NO.
2. Find a reason why somebody else is better at the task being given.
3. Explain priorities of other tasks and ask if the task can wait for a long time (obviously it will be delegated and Ur No accepted.)
4. Ask Ur boss how he wud say no to something.
5. Do not qualify urself for everything in the organization.
6. Alwz have a valid reason.
7. Buy time when possible and then say no by providing a genuine reason.
8. Draw out plans and stick to them that will make it easier to say no.
9. Blame it on the boss that is of course that u r confident that he/she will stand by u.
10. Make a mean NO! Don’t quibble. When u say no, mean it. Beware of Ur body language.
Finally just say no. a clear no prevents misunderstandings. It keeps people from going of in wrong directions and wasting time. And this s requires practice

As we grow up more we usually say more yes than no .

wow..that was really great..
well..
i guess being aware of the body languae is pretty much an essential aspect..
becoz...80 % of our communication is non verbal and only 20% is verbal...so our voice, body and face should say and mean the same thing.....
