Workshop Content

We all have situations in our lives where we need to have what we feel are difficult, complicated or challenging conversations with people - where the outcome will have a significant impact on us. For example:

  • When we need to ask for more money and other resources
  • When we need to ensure that others understand our point of view
  • When we are under pressure to say yes, but need to say no.

Learning how to achieve optimum solutions so that all concerned are satisfied with the outcome is a valuable skill and being assertive will help.

This workshop is full of tips and strategies to help you get what you want, while maintaining healthy relationships with the other people involved.

We explain what behaviours constitute assertiveness and how to deal with negative aggressive and passive behaviour (in others and in yourself).

There will be plenty of opportunities to test-drive the theory in a fun way.

Who should attend?

Anyone who would like to find out more about developing assertive behaviour.

Expected learning outcomes

  • A clearer understanding of assertiveness and assertive behaviours
  • More ideas on how to deal effectively with non-assertive behaviours
  • Tips and advice on how to be more assertive
