The Art of Saying No

Thursday, July 11, 2019

2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Are you confused about when to say "yes" and "no" to other people's requests?

 

Do you often say "yes" to requests without realizing the impact that response will have on your time and productivity?

 

Do you find yourself feeling angry and resentful during the academic year because you've said "yes" too often?

 

You're not alone! Many faculty (pre and post-tenure) find it incredibly difficult to sort out when, why and how to say "NO." In this webinar, you will learn:

 

·         The biggest mistakes faculty make in responding to requests

·         How to identify and disrupt problematic patterns

·         Our favorite strategies that you can implement immediately so you can add "no" to your vocabulary
