The Leadership Challenge Workbook
We often hear the words, “We can’t do that because” when we want to try something new or innovative. On page 80 of your workbook, you will see a list of phrases that we might hear used as reasons for not trying something new. Select one phrase that you have either heard or used in a situation at work, school or home. Explain how and why this statement was used and describe how you might overcome this objection.
