Course description

  • Are you tired of holding back in conversations?
  • Are you fed up of people taking advantage of you?
  • Perhaps you find it difficult to remain composed when someone frustrates you?

If you don’t speak up for yourself, refuse to make decisions, or let others dictate your actions – people start to view you as a bit of a pushover, or someone who lacks confidence – neither of these are advantageous, especially in the workplace.

Often, it’s easier for you to swallow your feelings, shout at someone or give them the silent treatment. But assertiveness is a much better strategy.

We’ve all had moments when we’ve failed to speak up for ourselves and said “yes” when we really wanted to say no.

No matter how confident you are, most of us wonder if perhaps we couldn’t be just a bit more assertive in certain situations.

Your assertiveness is your ability to express your feelings, beliefs, and thoughts and defend your rights in a non-destructive way. It involves effectively and constructively expressing your emotions so that you can be forthright and frank when putting your views across.

Your assertiveness considers how far you will go to stand up your rights for what you perceive is right.  Assertiveness and aggression are two very different things although the two qualities are often somewhat confused.  Aggression involves hostile acts or feelings whereas assertiveness is your confidence in being able to show determination with persistence and constructively argue your own views in a calm and positive way.

Luckily, assertiveness is a learned ability. It’s learned through practice.  If you are not naturally assertive, it can take some effort, but being more assertive is not impossible. For this to work you must approach them with an open mind and be ready to put into practice what you learn.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to become more assertive, in this course you can explore basic skills and strategies to improve your assertiveness and develop your emotional intelligence and build trust..

This course will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to become more assertive using emotional intelligence, taking control of your life in the process.

Within the course, you will discover powerful techniques that help you become more assertive through effective communication and gain a deeper understanding of how to form trusting relationships.

Use this course to help you boost your assertiveness.  You can work through the entire course, or, because we all have busy lives, you have the option to go straight to particular skills you’d like to work on.

Good match

Very good match. I recognise some of the book" When I Say No I Feel Guilty" in it - the Assertiveness Bill of Rights. I'm really finding it useful.
