What is Assertiveness?

Assertiveness is the skill of being confident and defending your point of view without being aggressive. You can be assertive whilst remaining positive, not getting stressed or upset and still respecting the opinions of others.

What is Assertiveness training?

Our Assertiveness training course is an opportunity to learn how to make your voice heard, share your point of view, be in control of your emotions and know how to say no when needed. We will teach you to become assertive and confidently communicate messages clearly to your colleagues, stakeholders and team members.

Good assertiveness ties in persuasiveness: being able to support the opinions of others and build co-operation between team members. This is essential to achieve success within any team and business.

This course is perfect for Team Leaders, Supervisors, Managers or anyone wanting to learn how to communicate easily and effectively with colleagues and team members.

• Improve your persuasion and communication skills
• Overcome anxiety, apprehension and fear
• Learn to express yourself with positive language and body language
