Learn to Say NO Workshop | Sydney | Soft skills

How to say (and accept) NO?




What exactly is The Art of Saying No? A lot of people just don't like the idea of having to tell people they can't do anything. When they are saying no, they wonder if they are still believable, likeable, or reliable and they often end up sending a weak ‘maybe’ or worst, they say ‘yes’ when they don’t want to. If you

would like for you and your teams to be able to say no firmly, and have it accepted, without being discourteous, this Saying No training workshop is for you.





  • Understand that no doesn’t always have to be negative.

  • Assess your no-power and understand why it is so hard for you to say no.

  • Saying no to customers, managers and co-workers: case-studies.

  • Easy steps to say no: the no strategy to make it easier (not easy) to say no without guilt.

  • The art of saying no: save the deal, save the relationship, and still say no.

  • Develop your empathy & assertiveness skills to master the art of saying no.

  • Develop your ability to say no firmly but not aggressively without apologising.

  • Work on emotional intelligence to manage your stress of saying no.

  • Learn to stick to no in challenging situations.

  • Changing others’ habits by changing your responses.

  • Practice the art of saying no: start saying what you don't want, as it is to be able to say what you do want. In other words, start choosing yourself, say no to others to say yes to yourself.
