Thursday, 1st October | 12:30 – 13:10pm
Are you a people pleaser? Do you recognise yourself in this scenario:
Overworked, pushed to your limits and then a bit beyond them, stressed to the max, when suddenly, another project lands on your desk. Do you grit your teeth and cancel all plans to sleep for the next month, or do you politely, but very firmly, deflect it?
Or perhaps you want to put some extra work hours in at the weekend, but your partner expects you to go with them to their fifth cousin’s third child’s second birthday?
We can’t do it all, all of the time. Recognising our priorities and valuing our time means that occasionally we have to create boundaries to stop other people imposing. Particularly when it comes to our work lives, we never want to refuse a request—but if you are overburdened, the quality of your work, and ultimately your reputation, suffers.
Join this webinar if you want to discover five tried and tested ways to say no to any request. Paulo Coehlo, author of ‘The Alchemist’, once wrote, “When you say yes to others, make sure you are not saying no to yourself.” Discover the simple joy of listening to yourself, respecting your own boundaries and time, and making sure that others do too.
