The Life-Changing Joy of Saying No, with Ellen Grove

Too much work on your team’s plate? Feeling pressured to attend a meeting that you don’t see value in? Or maybe you’re finding it hard to resist the lure of taking on a new fun thing…which is adding to that over-sized pile of work already on your plate. There are many reasons we find it hard to say no to others (and even to ourselves sometimes!), but being able to say no with clarity and empathy is a critical professional skill. In this interactive workshop, we’ll explore why it can be so hard to say no clearly and effectively and learn strategies for ways to say no with respect and compassion.
