Saying "No" With Less Guilt-June 4 @6:30

Are you saying “yes” to things and sometimes regretting it? Do you tend to be a people-pleaser? With all the demands in our business and personal lives, it’s a challenge to determine what you most want to say yes to and how to say no to all the rest. This session will give you an understanding of why saying no can be so hard and uncover the long-term costs of being a people-pleaser. You’ll learn ways to become more courageous and competent at making wise choices and refusing those unwanted requests from others. Join us as Ruth Henneman as she presents this informative and important topic.
