The Power of Saying "No" or "Not Now"

August 31, 2021, 9:00 - 10:00 a.m.

Why do so many people have an issue with saying “no”? Saying “no” can be empowering, and you can still maintain your relationships. Saying “no” helps you establish healthy boundaries and enables others to have clarity about what they can expect from you. Join us for this virtual session as part of the Michigan ATHENA Series, where we will explore how saying “no” to certain things frees you up to say “yes” to the things you really need. Having the confidence to put limitations on your time and talents will help push you personally and professionally. It’s time for you to take back control! We will see you on August 31.
