Learning to Love No with Erin Joy

Learning to Love No with Erin Joy











According to research published by Harvard Business Review, women in business must substantially outperform the average professional in order to get ahead. As a result, a ‘yes’ culture has been created. Society tells us that to be seen as a true go-getter, deserving of success, we must say yes to everything that comes our way. We must prove that we’re willing, eager and capable of doing it all. The reality, however, is just the opposite.


In this presentation, entrepreneur and award- winning business consultant, Erin Joy draws from personal and client experiences and qualitative research to refute the dangerous ‘just say yes’ mindset and prove that there is even more power in saying ‘no.’ Wielded wisely, ‘no’ is an instrument of integrity and a path to professional (and personal) achievement.


Deciding when to say no requires a serious review of your priorities, interests, and commitments. In practice, saying no provides a sense of empowerment, which is the ultimate key to success in business and in life. The rigidity of ‘no’ counter-intuitively allows for the necessary flexibility and freedom to say yes to more valuable priorities and experiences. After all, closing the door on one opportunity inevitably creates the space to say ‘yes’ to an opportunity more critical to your mission.
