Assertiveness Training

assertive

Would you describe yourself as assertive?

Are you considerate of others, and open in your communication?

Do you ‘hold back’, or do you ‘step on toes’ too often?

Nobody is born assertive, assertiveness is a learned behaviour.

Course Overview:

Our Assertiveness Training aims to increase individual’s awareness of influence styles in inter-personal relationships. Individuals are able to engage in self-assessment tools to measure their assertive, passive & aggressive behavioural tendencies, whilst gaining new knowledge, skills and attitudes for assertiveness in the workplace. Increased assertiveness results in individuals being open, honest, respectful, tactful, considerate and confident..
