Fewer but Better: Selecting Your Yes with Intention
Setting healthy boundaries and learning to say no are two of the most difficult professional skills to develop. Yet the cost of permeable boundaries and endless people-pleasing includes burnout, resentment, and disengagement. Paradoxically, too many indiscriminate “yeses” also make us less effective by shifting our focus away from our best work and highest contributions. In this engaging and interactive program, Rebekah Cummings shares her personal journey of digging into the literature on time management, boundaries, and wellness to reclaim her time and build intentionality into her schedule and priorities.

Drawing upon researchers and leaders from various disciplines, this webinar explores practical and theoretical concepts to prioritize our time, mitigate burnout, and identify meaningful and impactful work.

As a result of this program, participants will:

• Develop and articulate practical strategies for creating healthy boundaries and saying yes and no with intention
• Examine core beliefs around worthiness, approval, and agency
• Identify and make space for inspiring, engaging, and impactful work as the antidote to burnout and resentment
