EP 44. How to Say Yes that Actually Supports YOU

While saying “no” is frequently emphasised in discussions about boundaries, in this week’s episode I talk about the often overlooked art of saying “yes”, and explore a more nuanced approach to both.

Drawing insights from works like ‘The Coaching Habit’ by Michael Stanier and ‘Essentialism’ by Greg McKeown, I share a strategy that fosters alignment with personal values and goals.

Mastering the art of saying “yes” and “no” is essential for personal and professional growth. By aligning your decisions with your values and goals, you can navigate life's complexities with confidence and clarity.

In this episode you will learn:

  • The strategic importance of saying “yes” and “no”
  • Why clarifying questions are key for making aligned decisions
  • What to do before committing to a “yes”
  • How to say a “yes” that supports you
  • What you can do to say “no” effectively
  • Ways to navigate difficult conversations with ease
