Thumbnail Don Khouri

Do you have clarity on your priorities to an extent that it is easy to make daily decisions on when to accept requests for your time?

While many experts talk about the importance of saying no and others teach how to say no, Don Khouri, Executive Coach at Khouri Coaching, noticed that the real problem is that we don’t like to say no.

On this episode of The Workplace Communication Podcast, as author of When to Say Yes, The 5 Steps to Protect Your Time, Don teaches us what he’s learned about the mindset of the most productive people when they say YES.

Leadership tips you won’t want to miss:

🎙️ Establishing criteria of what will (and will not) trigger reprioritization on your calendar

🎙️ Approaching delegating as creating a growth opportunity for someone else

🎙️ Shifting from “I don’t have time” to “this is not a priority to me right now”.

🎙️ Developing a road map for the priorities in your life

Don Khouri is a speaker, author, and executive coach who helps executives and business leaders be more productive and profitable. He is the author of When to Say Yes, The 5 Steps to Protect Your Time.

If you’re looking to hit that magical state of productivity without intense stress, then this episode is for you!
