Are you plagued by “scope-creep?”
Do people dump “stuff” on you that isn’t your job?
You just heard your mouth say, “yes” when inside your head you are still screaming, “Say No! Say No!” You caved… yet again
Now you’re stuck… and once again you find yourself asking, “Why do people have to be so demanding, so difficult?”
In that instant you now have to change your plans, juggle your calendar and try to figure out how you can make it work (or get out of it gracefully – maybe cousin Ed can have a heart attack again), all the while your inner voice is screaming “If I say ‘no’, they’re not going to like me… You idiot, you fool… I should have seen it coming… what’s wrong with me?”
Later that night, you jolt out of a fitful sleep in a cold sweat, that inner critic screaming, “What did I do to deserve this,” “how could they do that to me,” “they should have known better,” and “what makes me so gullible?”
What a pickle! You have to say no to something. There just isn’t time. So do you say no to sleep, exercise, or those understanding friends and family who once again are the ones you have to disappoint, all because you didn’t stand up for yourself?
Maybe you’ve even asked yourself, “Why do I allow others to dump on me, treat me poorly and take advantage of me?” Yet, you know you can choose how you respond, you just don’t know how to do it so nobody gets hurt — especially yourself!
It sounds like you have a “boundary issue” when:
- You are overwhelmed with demands that are made on you which have nothing to do with your job.
- Someone tells you they will do something and they don’t do it so you once again have to pull an all-nighter.
- Roles, responsibilities, and expectations aren’t clear.
- Coworkers continually come to meetings late and/or meetings are unproductive.
- People are disrespectful of your time, your work, and of YOU!
- You find yourself trying to avoid certain people. Fear, mistrust and gossip rule the day.
- People continually interrupt you in your office when you’ve told them not to do so.
- You work very late hours at the expense of your family or friends and your own mental and physical well-being.
Relationships at work, and with family or friends are never simple, are they? But one thing they shouldn’t be is consistently stressful. Are you living with the fear of “what are they going to dump on me next?”
Deep down inside you may feel that something is wrong, somehow you are defective, somehow you HAVE TO say yes or somebody’s going to get mad! As a result, you just don’t challenge the status quo.
Isn’t it time to stop shrinking in response to someone else’s insults, demands and down-right inexcusable behavior?
Imagine finding the courage to be fine saying no and stand strong without having to get nasty or angry. It’s entirely possible. In fact, it’s not even particularly difficult when you know the verbal and nonverbal secrets to successfully deal with difficult people and learn to set boundaries that people actually respect and respect you for setting them.
Make April 13th the day you start the New You and join Competitive Edge Communications Success Series when it presents:
How To Set Boundaries Without Damaging Relationships, Sacrificing Sales or Sabotaging Your Career
Stop allowing the rudeness of others to become your problem. Stop fading away, wondering how you are going to make yet another “little request” work.
Join me, Sharon Sayler, founder of Competitive Edge Communications and behavioral communications expert, for this small-group (10 max) hands-on, one-day workshop, for your opportunity to learn to say “no” in ways that preserve the relationship either on the job or at home.
Look, I know from personal experience just how difficult it can be to overcome boundary problems without outside help. On April 13th, I’ll walk you through how to stop getting mad with yourself or others and instead how to set boundaries with ease and grace.
Just think of what the inability to set boundaries has cost you so far in deadlines being missed, important work not getting done, poor communication, decreased teamwork, hurt feelings, increased stress and relationships lost — maybe even a high loss-rate in your personal relationships too.
Refuse to give the demanding, hurtful people of this world any of your personal power by joining me in Manhattan on April 13th for this small group (limit 10), hands-on, one-day workshop to learn the art of saying no, so others know you mean business, know you care and you are not going to do what they ‘demand’ you do.
Learn the principles and research-based techniques that you can immediately use to comfortably say “No” and you will learn how to influence the best in others and communicate with confidence.
You will leave this one-day workshop knowing the essential communication skills to:
You will have in hand well-defined, simple and easy-to-implement techniques on how to use personal boundaries without conflict, without damaging relationships, sacrificing sales or sabotaging your career. It’s time to find the courage and believe in yourself, even if it’s for just one day.
On April 13th, you will find the courage to:
Make April 13th the start of a new way of being. Stop allowing the rudeness of others to become your downfall and let me personally show you How To Set Boundaries Without Damaging Relationships, Sacrificing Sales or Sabotaging Your Career by putting my two decades of hard-won lessons and experience to work on YOUR dreams, YOUR plans, YOUR life.
If working hands-on in a very small group with me, and people struggling just like you to set boundaries that people respect would give you greater clarity about boundaries, dealing with anger with confidence, saying no with comfort, knowing how to say yes when you want to, and having the techniques and a plan to set boundaries and achieve your goals faster and with less effort is what you need to be doing now, grab your opportunity now as it is one-day only – this April 13th.
