Unreasonable requests are never an easy fix. Whether it comes form a sponsor, demanding boss, a direct report, or a faculty member, we’ve all been on the receiving end of an unpleasant demand. It’s been said that timing is everything, and knowing when it’s the right time to say “no” is an important skill. Of equal importance is learning the right way to say “no”; it can help you avoid a bad situation and turn a possible tyrant into one of your biggest allies. This interactive session will discuss different types of behaviors, including your own, and the ways we can turn a negative situation into a positive one. Case studies will be used and we will encourage audience participation.
