Assertive Communication Skills.jpg



Assertiveness is all about being able to express feelings, wishes, wants and desires appropriately and is an important personal and interpersonal skill.  In all your interactions with other people, whether at home or at work, with employers, customers or colleagues, assertiveness can help you to express yourself in a clear, open and reasonable way, without undermining your own or others’ rights.


During this 1-day workshop, you will develop the skills and the confidence to assert your opinions and proposals in a way that is more easily accepted by the listener. If you lack the skills to stand up and make your voice heard this workshop will help you understand your own communication style and how it might impact others. It will provide communication and influencing tools to help present your case and will prepare you for challenges that may arise.

Objectives of this workshop:

On completion of this workshop, attendees will be more confident, assertive, and influential in communications.
