This Assertiveness Training Course develops assertiveness skills and improves communication with others in business situations.
Being assertive is being able to express yourself with confidence without having to resort to passive, aggressive or manipulative behaviour.
By developing assertiveness and becoming aware of our own strengths and weaknesses, we can modify our behaviour for greater effectiveness in social and business interactions.
With the training this course provides, participants will know how to become more assertive and build self-confidence, which in-turn will help them to achieve greater work effectiveness and productivity. It will give them more control in their daily activities and some strategies to overcome stressful work and life situations.
