The world is full of people who will tell you that you cannot do something. It’s a trait of bureaucracy. But can also be a trait of HR, customer service, purchasing, and other areas in your business. While there may be perfectly good reasons for saying no, it’s not helpful. How refreshing it is then, when the response is “You can’t do that, but let’s figure out how you can get the result you want.” It’s a difference in attitude, but it’s also a difference in how the person regards his or her job and their depth of knowledge.
