[FLR] When to Say No to Your Boss

Jan 27, 2017 – The ‘No’ Edition


Happy Friday!


There are two key words that fundamentally decide our future. What you say “yes” to, and what to say “no” to. It is very tempting for you, as a leader, to want to say yes to as many ideas and options as you can. The busier you are, the more successful you tend to be. The more projects, teams and balls you have in the air, the better it is. The reality is, you can only do so much well.


No is a great word under the right set of circumstances. It’s not the most popular word, and you have to be careful with it. Saying no can make the things you say “yes” to so much better.
