Looking for advice on how to be less of a ‘yes woman.’ I’ve gotten feedback that I should be less quick to say yes or should feel comfortable pushing back on unreasonable requests, but I’m struggling with doing that in practice.

Wondering if there are any resources (coaching, book recommendations…?) that you have found helpful to retrain your frame of mind to be less of a people pleaser and feel more confident being direct or saying no. Any suggestions welcome!
