More on this workshop:

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” ~ Winston Churchill

There is no need to change your personality to become more assertive, all you need to do is to ensure that your personality shines through.

Being assertive means that you make yourself heard and that you communicate well. Aggression is the opposite of assertiveness as much as being unassertive is.

At our assertiveness courses, we delve into the reasons for unassertive and aggressive behaviour, understanding ourselves and finally our chosen communication patterns.

This is a life-giving workshop, we recommend it for every person whether in management or not.

If you battle to say no, go over to silent withdrawal or active aggression, this is for you.

The duration of this seminar is 1 day(s).
