Saying No: How to Defend Your Interests, Resist Pushback,
AND Still Get to the Right YES

Presented by:
Nancy Schnoebelen Imbs
Founder & President

As HR Professionals, we are often in the position of having to say "no", but that can be one of the hardest words to say. Is it because we have a strong desire to be liked? Is it because we've been socialized to value other people's needs and feelings more than our own, or because we don't want to seem rude? Learning to use your "no voice" as an HR professional not only builds character and strength, it puts you in charge. This program will offer valuable information in the art of saying "no" while protecting and advancing your core interests - all without compromising relationships!

Learning Objectives:
  • Learn how to say "no" clearly, effectively and gracefully
  • Improve your assertive communication skills
  • Learn how to resist aggression, manipulation and guilt tactics
  • Understand the importance of self-care and respecting your limit
  • Learn the power of a Positive No
This seminar uses principals from the William L. Ury bestseller, The Power of Positive No.

This session has been approved for 1.25 hours of SHRM and HRCI Certification Credit.
