Course Overview:

This one-day course reiterates that there is a right way and a wrong way to state your case in a forthright manner. The answer is not aggression or passivity; it is positive assertiveness. This class focuses on how to be assertive by sending the right signals and encouraging the right responses. The session provides insight into how individuals can handle themselves without appearing either too shy or too pushy. Participants will gain insight in how to avoid certain pitfalls that get in the way of positive communication and how to operate from a more confident place. How to get their jobs done in a more effective manner through the careful crafting of a positive image will be stressed. Additional topics to be covered include:

  • Mistaken assumptions versus legitimate rights
  • Defining assertiveness: what it is and what it is not
  • Communication with power
  • Understanding gender differences in communication
  • Assertiveness techniques
