From time to time I talk to people who are struggling to say “no” to their boss or communicate a tough message to someone in authority over them. The book Crucial Conversations is a helpful book that can be a guide to having just such an interaction with a superior. The article linked here distills some of the book’s principles to help us prepare for disagreeing with our boss. If you have a tough conversation coming up with someone in authority over you, give yourself 10 minutes to read and digest this helpful article.
