What’s more powerful than knowing what you want? Knowing what you DON’T want. 

And saying it out loud.

To contribute to the world as your best self and make a positive difference for everyone, you need to be able to express your dislikes and disagreements directly, clearly, and responsibly.

Many of us grew up learning not to “rock the boat.” To smile and pretend it was OK—even when it wasn’t. 

As human beings, it’s normal to want to please others—not to hurt anyone’s feelings or face displeasure or rejection—to fit in and be liked.

But when you don’t express all of who you are, including what you disagree with, you:

  1.     Limit the ability for others to get to know the real you
  2.     Create additional stress in having your Yes be a pseudo-Yes
  3.     Create a life that leaves you feeling disappointed, resentful, and unfulfilled

 In this premiere training from the Wright Foundation, The Power of No: How to Be on Your Side and Shift into a Real Yes, you’ll learn how to:

  • Express yourself in direct and truthful ways, without apology and equivocation

  • Create space for yourself to discern what you think, feel, prefer, and want

  • Learn to displease others to go for what you want

  • Tune in to yourself in a powerful way

  • Feel the joy that comes with being real while reducing unnecessary stress
