Podcast: How to say no to stakeholders

What are your relationships like with your leaders and stakeholders in your organisation?

Do you feel able to say no to them?

When you are working as an internal communicator, you need to be able to say no.

This is a fairly controversial topic, but a critical one. It was prompted by two conversations I had with professional communicators recently during calls with them.

This week’s episode of the Candid Comms podcast includes:

  • Why you need to say no
  • How to talk confidently and explain your decision making
  • How to gather your evidence
  • The hardest words to say in internal communication

and much more.

What is the podcast?

The Candid Comms podcast launched in January 2021. It is a weekly show designed to connect internal communication professionals to the advice and guidance, to help you thrive in your role.

You can find the Candid Comms podcast on your favourite player including Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify and Podbean.
