Feeling stuck personally or professionally? Perhaps there’s always been a nagging sense that you are not living in alignment with your purpose – or that you are simply exhausted from putting everyone else’s needs above your own. Even when you try to shake it off, that spiraling sense of being stuck inevitably comes back, like a boomerang or shoulder pads as a fashion trend. And now you’re ready to do something about it.

Stop Apologizing

Increase your well-being, success, and happiness by setting boundaries and say “no” with ease

Stop Apologizing

Overview

Ever notice how often women say they are sorry – even when there is nothing to apologize for? A study at the University of Waterloo in Canada found that women apologize more frequently than men while social scientists have noted that females are often raised to be people pleasers from a young age. It can be easy to slip into that habit of “apology speak” in order to diffuse tension or avoid being disliked. But there is a steep price to pay. When you constantly apologize for no reason or make self-deprecating comments to hide your awesomeness, it diminishes the value of a woman’s ideas and accomplishments, setting you back professionally and personally. Within this upbeat, effective session, participants of all genders will learn how to stop making unnecessary apologies that aren’t doing you any favors.

Learning Objectives

  • Why it is more important than ever before to stop apologizing
  • How to break the cycle of unnecessary apology speak
  • Tips for setting boundaries and saying “no” with ease
  • How to create actionable steps specific to your own circumstances

“Shira was a featured speaker at an Emory Alumni Association event for rising female leaders, and did a fantastic job energizing our participants. Through her witty, candid, and inspiring anecdotes, Shira walked the audience through strategies for mastering the art of self-advocacy. Since she is extremely well spoken and personable, guests were able to connect with her and feel comfortable sharing their own challenges. I recommend Shira for any leadership summit or motivational speaking event!”

Sarah Hay Rawls, Director, Alumni Career Services
Emory University Alumni Association

“Shira Miller recently spoke at a Public Relations Society conference and received some of the highest survey evaluations we've ever received. I was in the room, front row, for her presentation and got to marvel at the remarks she prepared, the way she engaged the crowds even before the speech began, the clarity of her insights, the humor and pathos of her delivery and the interactivity with the people assembled in her audience. Ultimately the entire room felt like community. She has a natural ability to bring out the best in others and to summon the art of storytelling to bring forth ideas that work. This was a speech about employee engagement, a critical topic and one of her areas of expertise. Folks left with dozens of new ideas they could immediately apply to their business. I highly recommend Shira as a speaker, coach and motivator. If you have a big group of people, she will be able to bring intimacy, interactivity and innovation to the group faster and better than nearly anyone I've seen.”

Shira Miller has a rare gift for putting an audience at ease and simultaneously creating engagement and inspiration. She doesn't stop at inspiration alone -- that would be the work of merely a "motivational" speaker. Shira is much more than that! She is truly a transformational speaker. Not only does she highlight what's possible for people who want to excel in life and in work, Shira also lays out a specific blueprint for action. People leave her presentations with clear next steps for creating a life and work they love. Priceless.
