Tues 30, 7-9pm: The “Learn to Say No” philosophical conference is a valuable opportunity to acquire skills and tools useful in personal and professional life. Saying “no” is often difficult for many of us because we tend to want to please others or avoid conflict. However, learning to say “no” is crucial for establishing healthy boundaries, protecting our time and energy, and maintaining our mental and emotional balance. During this conference, you will learn strategies for communicating assertively, saying “no” without guilt, and managing negative reactions from others. You will also discover how to say “no” constructively, that is, by offering alternatives or explaining your reasons clearly and respectfully. In short, this conference will help you develop your self-confidence and improve your quality of life.
