- What are some ways that our courage of no is tested? Can you think of an example from the video or one from your personal life that you can share?
- Can you name the three habits and tactics to help you develop the courage to say no? Be as specific as you can be.
- Come up with two situations that might test your courage of no.
For example: You are with a group of people and someone starts saying bad things about someone else. You don’t really agree with what they are saying, but you feel uncomfortable telling them to stop.
Once you have the situations, role play and practice how you could use the courage of no to stick to what you believe in.
