Three Ways to say No


3 ways to say No:  One- just be direct, express how you feel. Keep your explanation short and clear.  But make the other person know that you're willing to listen to his side, and that you're not really closing any doors, its just that at that moment, your answer is no.   Two- say No and offer another platform or alternative. In this way, you're offering a solution and a compromise.  Three- say No and give a short reason why you said no. And then either change the subject or invite the person for a drink or something. Basically in this scenario, you're not really burning all the bridges.
