NCFDD Webinar: The Art of Saying No

July 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

  • This event has passed.
  • 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
