Ask a Manager: How to Say No and How to
Express Yourself with Confidence

Led by Amanda Long, Director of Employer Relations and Career Outreach, Kennesaw State University, Department of Career Planning and Development and GACE Past President 2016-2017

For this conversation, we’ll listen to two podcast episodes from Alison Green’s Ask a Manager podcast. Listen as Alison takes calls and emails from listeners and addresses common issues at work.

Podcast Episode: “How to Say No to Your Boss (Ask a Manager)

For some, saying “no” at work is challenging on its own, but when you add the challenge of needing to say “no” to your boss – is that even an option? How can you “manage up” in an effective way while not jeopardizing future opportunities for upward mobility? Listen in and let’s discuss if you agree or disagree with this advice, and if you see yourself implementing it at work.

Podcast Episode: “I Need More Confidence at Work (Ask a Manager)” 

Have you struggled with imposter syndrome at work? You’re not alone! Lacking confidence not only affects your ability to grow at work – it can also affect how you engage with others on the job. Listen in to see if you relate and we’ll discuss strategies for counteracting imposter syndrome and boosting confidence at work.
