Speaking Up at Work to Manage Unrealistic Expectations CALL KERRY (403.544.5567) TO ARRANGE YOUR PERSONAL VIEWING OF THIS WEBINAR!

When asked to do the impossible at work, you agree—and, even worse, you succeed!

You beat a client’s pressing deadline, battle a mountain of work, navigate the unfamiliar project of a vacationing colleague. Your reward: Unreasonable time frames, growing workloads and special requests become the norm. Can you keep this up? Do you have a choice?

Yes, if you make your limits clear.

Companies value productive employees who move outside comfort zones, grow and succeed. But we all have breaking points ... when we’ve agreed to more than we can deliver. Believe it or not, everyone benefits when you speak up. Register now for this inspiring, new one-hour Webinar on how to identify and communicate your work boundaries. You’ll find out how to set reasonable limits and control pie-in-the-sky expectations.
