Pruning: Group Encounter
how to say no and finally prioritize

Cut it out. Humans have bad habits of saying yes when they really want to say no, not now, or I have a more important yes.

How do we stop bungling our efforts personally and professionally?
How do we get clear on what really matters?
How do I say no and finally prioritize?

Keeping it simple has never been easy, and yet now the path has never been more clear. Future-ready yourself and your workforce with Pruning: Group Encounter.

A science-backed, professional-grade curated leadership development experience in-a-box. Just gather your group of 2-6 people, set the deck of cards in the middle of the group, and begin by having someone simply draw and read the first card. The experience and instruction are embedded in the deck of cards and people will take turns drawing from the top. The experience is concluded when all cards have been drawn.

This experience is intentionally designed to create a unique in-person, differentiated experience that makes clear "why did I commute in for this?". It asks participants to notice, connect, reflect, and move toward personal commitments.
