Course description

Do you find it difficult to provide direction to your employees without coming across as bossy or overbearing? Do you struggle to find the right words to motivate others without sounding desperate? With a strong handle on how to effectively use assertive communication skills, every manager can learn to take a positive approach to leading employees toward success while maintaining a balanced and productive team.

Managers generally fall into one of three groups — aggressive, passive or assertive. Those who are too aggressive may be successful in completing short-term goals, but often struggle to maintain positive relationships with their employees over time. Managers who are too passive have no problem building relationships, but find it challenging to motivate others and solve problems. It's assertive managers that have the ability to provide guidance to their employees to get the job done while commanding respect.

An organization's success depends on its managers' ability to lead, and this leadership is a combination of their communication skills, ability to build relationships and composure when handling conflict. Managers, who can find a balance between aggressive and passive management styles will build bridges, mend fences and lead your organization confidently and effectively.

Are you confident that you can do all of the following?

  • Communicate with tact and professionalism
  • Defuse volatile situations when conflict arises
  • Motivate others to accomplish a common goal
  • Maintain positive, professional relationships
  • Present your ideas, plans and strategies in a clear and effective way
