Outline

Assertiveness is not always about getting your own way, but it is about being able to confidently express your own needs.

When people talk about being more assertive, they usually mean:

  • How do I resist always saying yes when I really want to say no?
  • How do I say what I really think without upsetting someone?
  • How do I gain more control in situations that are important to me?

This workshop is about understanding what assertiveness really means to you, and how to be more assertive when you need to be.

I feel confident going back to my role with these new techniques and putting them into practice.

I learnt a lot in this course that I can now bring into my role everyday, it was nice that everyone was involved in taking part with some individual discussions in breakout rooms. Sheila was very informative and helpful, I will definitely be recommending the course throughout the company!
