Assertiveness Skills Training

Assertiveness Course description

 

When you’re in the business of serving others you are quite probably a people pleaser.

You want to delight your clients and say yes to every request for help, finding it difficult to say no because you’re naturally inclined to be helpful because your default position is not to cause offence.

Assertiveness is having the confidence to express your own opinions clearly and positively, and understanding that your opinions are no less valid than the next person’s.

In a business context, assertiveness is an important skill that will help you to communicate your ideas clearly with clients and contractors alike without appearing ‘pushy’.

Assertiveness is frequently confused with aggression, anger, brashness, or even bullying. Being assertive is none of these things.
