Assertiveness Skills

Why take this course?

Assertiveness is one of the cornerstones of personal effectiveness. Assertiveness skills help us to better understand our own wants, needs and preferences in different contexts. With this greater level of awareness we can set and maintain clear boundaries and expectations with other people. By doing so we can avoid being overly aggressive or passive. Instead, we can say ‘no’ without feeling guilty, ask for what we want without seeming demanding and we can give other people credit for taking responsibility for their own actions.

Who's it for?

Assertiveness skills are for everyone! This course is suitable for team members, managers and leaders in any role and any level.

Assertiveness skills help understand ourselves better and improve our communication with colleagues, team members and customers alike.
