From the Heart with Floella Benjamin
Floella's Roadmap to Life: The Power of Saying 'No'
Monday, 5 August
What would you do if someone made improper advances to you?
What if saying no to someone could potentially damage your career?
No matter who you are or what you do, people will try and take advantage of you in work, within your family and sometimes in your day to day life. In this episode, Floella talks about a tool that she uses to stay true to herself, and live a life free of guilt and regret. The word ‘no’. This demonstrates respect for yourself and allows you to be in the driving seat of your life.
Reflecting on her personal experiences, Floella discusses how saying 'No' can evolved the 'Me Too' narrative into a culture of saying 'I didn't' and how this movement is as important for some men as it is for women.
Drawing on stories and lessons learned over the last 50 years in the entertainment, business and political spheres, Floella Benjamin will give you all the tools you need to be true to yourself, respect who you are and how you can speak from the heart and create a lasting legacy.
