The art of leadership is saying no, not yes. It is very easy to say yes. ~Tony Blair Learning to say no is one of the most important steps to becoming an effective leader. Once you've adopted this vital 2-letter word into your vocabulary, you'll be able to manage yourself and your team better, and focus on the big picture issues.
Here are some things a good leader says no to:
- mission drift
- mistreatment of a team member by others
- requests that are inconsistent with the organization's values
- being asked to comprimise on quality
