In one of my recent newsletters, I gave you tips on how to answer any question. But what about those pesky questions that you can’t, shouldn’t or don’t want to answer?
Whether it’s inappropriate, out of scope, or on a topic you would rather not dwell on, every now and then you are asked a question that you’d like to avoid. You can’t just walk away, though you would like to. Sometimes we get stuck like a deer in the headlights. We answer the question and then kick ourselves later.

This is an easily applicable strategy for NOT answering a question and still maintaining your professional presence. Hear all about it in this week’s Success Shortie!
