Attending the event even though we don’t want to. Saying “sure, I can help!” even though it puts us behind on our own work. Overcommitting to the point that we are tired, stressed out, and edgy. Saying “yes” because we think saying “no” will be rude. Sound familiar? If so, you’re not alone. We often find ourselves saying “yes” to try to be nice, to avoid hurting someone’s feelings, or to be helpful.
However, when we do, we’re often saying “no” to ourselves.
During this interactive lunchtime learning session, we will:
- Explore the “myths of saying yes
- Understand the immediate and long term impacts of saying "yes" when we really want to say “no"
- Try out a few hands-on tools to make saying "no" easier and learn specific tools and approaches to use in everyday life and in challenging situations
This is a free event; please reserve your seat here, as it may fill up.
