Stop Apologizing: Letting Go of Communication Habits That Get in The Way

Thursday, July 26, 2018
8:30 to 10am
Norris Medical Library West Conference Room
WIM members no charge; non-members $10

Why Do We Apologize So Much? Have we fallen into the over-apologizing trap? Have you ever said “I’m sorry” for things that don’t merit an apology in the first place? It’s a habit that can morph into a reflex reaction. Over-apologizing can not only be exhausting to you, but also to everyone around you. Join us for a WIM Professional Development session on communication. This session will be at Norris Medical Library West Conference Room, from 8:30 to 10am, Thursday, July 26, 2018. If you can’t attend in person, please contact Ginger Mayerson ( about attending remotely.
