The Art and Agony of Saying NO‪!‬ Advancing Women Podcast

    • Self-Improvement

Of all the advice given to women, almost nothing is as oversimplified as the advice to say no to service work, or volunteer work. Unpaid work. This episode goes beyond creating boundaries and controlling our own narrative. We consider with compassion why saying no, while difficult for many people, can be especially difficult for women. We examine the very real patterns of bias, social norms and expectations that contribute to why women often find saying no so challenging.


All you warriors listening have heard me say many times that this podcast is where empathy meets pragmatism, and nowhere is that more the case than this episode. We will discuss the art of saying no and the practical steps to decline effectively and confidently those unpaid, unappreciated projects that don’t move the needle in terms of your advancement goals.


If it’s not a HELL YES, then it probably should be a HELL NO. Make room for the HELL YES opportunities that the universe is working on sending you!!
