How good are you at saying no? ❓
❌ No I don't want to.
❌ No I don't have the time.
❌No I don't like that.
'No' is such a small word but also such a big word!
If you are one of the many people who struggle to say no to your team, boss, colleagues, friends or your family - remember that NO can be a complete sentence & NOT the start of negotiations.
Practice saying no to what doesn't serve you.
From a DISC profiling perspective the main profile that doesn't have a problem saying no quickly is the dominant red profile. They don't tend to beat about the bush!
The yellow influencers want to be your friend & want you to like them so can often SAY yes but actually DO no.
The green steady profiles are most likely to say yes & take on too much regardless of how much they’ve already got going on.
And the blue conscientious profile is more likely to give you a considered no. They won't want to let you down but would be less emotional in their decision making process than the yellow influencers and the green steady profiles.
