Saying “no” is powerful. My toddler wields the word on a daily basis, and in many ways, I’m in awe of his unabashed claim of the word. Despite being an empowering, commanding and beautiful word to utilize, many people struggle to say “no.” Bad habits, social conditioning, peer pressure or power dynamics can make it difficult to refuse a request. The best leaders and CEOs strengthen their ability to say no, and do so thoughtfully and decisively. They know what they want, and insist on it.
It can take practice to harness the super power of saying “no.” The first time you consciously assert yourself in this way, especially at work, it may feel awkward, like you’re doing something wrong.
