Have you ever been in such a situation?
You are under stress because of your workload and yet you accept a new assignment. Do you know how to say no when you start feeling the situation becomes unacceptable?
Even though your boss keeps saying: "I count on you, I know you can do it!"
You probably feel stuck facing what we call a Crucial Conversation, in which 3 elements combine:
1) strong emotions,
2) high stakes, and
3) opposing opinions.
As you normally do, you may decide to say nothing and then complain that it is always the same!
Our Crucial TIP is: Ask yourself: what do you really want? In a situation like this, how do you make sure you are listened to while maintaining the working relationship?
