- Part of being a good employee or a good colleague is being helpful, right? Well, sometimes. In general, yes, you should of course be helpful, but not all the time. Here's the issue. Far too often, people feel compelled to always help. That's why they constantly say yes and never gain comfort in saying no. As a result, their productivity and the quality of their work can slip. It doesn't have to be that way. Saying no effectively is a skill you can learn.
In this course, I'll make sure you know how to determine whether or not it makes sense to say no when others are seeking help, and I'll help you figure out exactly how to say it so that others really hear you. Being helpful is the right thing to do, but you need to do it in the right amount, at the right time, and for the right reasons. Start watching now so you can become more thoughtful about when and how to say now.
