The Power of No
Yes, Yes, Yes, and Yes! How many "yesses" do you think you say in a day, a week, a month, a year? Many, I'm sure, if you're like most women. Likely, you recently have been asked to lend a hand, lead a project or kick off an initiative. Many of us often find ourselves spread too thin across too many activities that leave us exhausted and feeling guilty since we can't be everywhere and do everything expected of us. Learn how successful women use "no" and take specific actions in navigating their professional path to advance forward.

Professionals who attend this session will walk away with:

  • Proven formulas to create the professional future you desire
  • Actionable strategies to effectively align commitments and choices to your best self
  • Valuable guidelines on when and how to involve mentors and sponsors
