Creating Boundaries to Unleash your Greatness Workshop

The Village Hive

Creating Boundaries to Unleash Your Inner Greatness Workshop By Sonia Grossi, Leadership Coach + Facilitator [masked] Must register on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/creating-boundaries-to-unleash-your-greatness-workshop-tickets-55300465180?aff=efbeventtix&fbclid=IwAR2SQs1Xv_0isEZcdw1uKzqCNGnr74ulHRH2U3U7MyYkyl73KHjY51j0co4 $45 Are you ever envious of people who are able to say NO with no regrets? What is a boundary and how does it serve you? How do you know what a boundary is and when it's crossed? How do you express that boundary? Feeling guilty, obligated, like you need to take care of others or they will leave you? What's stopping you from being authentically you and being comfortable enough to set boundaries with people? You might be someone who has said or thought the following: Are you someone who spends a lot of time with people who are toxic because you feel guilty if you don't? Are you someone who feels drained at the end of the day and would rather Netflix and chill instead of self-care and personal growth? Are you someone who is easily angered by people because of their lack of respect for you and your time? Are you tired of feeling taken advantage of others and saying yes anyway? Are you someone who easily compromises on your boundaries to please others because you want the relationship to "work"? Are you someone who says yes to your boss over and over because you want to be a top performer? Are you someone who says yes in dating a lot because you don't want to miss out on "the one" Are you someone who let your clients lead and set the expectations without setting your expectations and boundaries? You my friend....have weak boundaries and I get it. I used to be that person. I've learned a few things over the years with conscious effort and a lovely support system who helped me see what I was missing for so long. I've learned through the corporate world, owning a business, through my friendships and a LOT in the dating world. Join me on Sunday, March 17th for a workshop designed to create boundaries for more ease and joy at work and in your life. In this fun + experiential workshop, you'll get clear on your boundaries, and learn tools to express these boundaries to the people around you without guilt or shame. You'll get to experience your peers in the workshop express their frustrations with boundaries and learn from their experiences. You'll come up with a plan of action to set boundaries with the people you work with and the close relationships in your life. What will this workshop give you: Giving you more time and energy to focus on what's important to you Fulfilling and mutually respectful + beneficial relationships Awareness of what you are available for and what you aren't available for Teach others how to treat you giving you full permission to be yourself A sense of authority of who you are and who you aren't More freedom and ease in your life
