Trainer’s Tip: Saying ‘No’ Activities


Jennifer James suggests some ‘just say no’ exercises.

I use the following, very short, scenarios. They require very little explanation and only take a short time:

  • 1. A friend asks you to look after his/her dog for the weekend - you're not keen on dogs.

  • 2. Someone asks you to lend them a fiver which would leave you short of cash and needing to go to the bank.

  • 3. Your boss asks you to work late/over the weekend and you don't want to.

I put the emphasis on saying (and meaning!) no, and avoiding the temptation to go into long explanations as to why you can't help.
