The Art of Asking

Sometimes we need a remedial class in asking for what we want – and learning how to say no!

While I don't agree with everything here, this excellent piece by Sarah Kathleen Peck is well worth reading. For instance, in my view saying no can be done more gracefully, "I would really like to [meet, have lunch, etc] but I need to focus on certain priorities right now," and is better than saying "I need to focus on clients."

Practice makes perfect, and framing that question is not so easy sometimes!
