Having the Courage to Say No, Ginni Rometty
IBM CEO Ginni Rometty talks about the most important tool in achieving work-life balance: having the courage to say “no.”
GINNI ROMETTY: This idea about work, life balance-- it's the company's job to create a good environment for that. So we could talk a little bit about the things you do, but there is another side of this coin. You have to set your boundaries, and that's what gives you your balance. It really does work that way.
If you have the courage to say no and to prioritize, it will work out OK. So I try to give people that control. I say, take that control back to yourself. You do it. You set the boundary.
