 The art of pushing back, saying no, and even being honest with your professional relationships are critical skill sets that many creative lack. We worry about what other people want, think, or need and spend a lot of time doing things for others, often at the risk of hurting ourselves and our own team. We love being the nice guy and are notorious conflict-avoiders. This workshop will focus on the who, when, where, why, and how of saying “no” to clients, staff, and projects. Learn how to identify opportunities to push back and say no more effectively, without damaging relationships. Workshop will include interactive exercises inspired from real work situations. Swap tales of woe and learn strategies for how to better manage these situations more effectively.
