Assert yourself

Assert yourself – for women, immigrants and introverts

Being Assertive

  • Do you struggle to give or receive constructive feedback?
  • Do you say ‘Yes’ to requests, when you want to say ‘No’?
  • Do you struggle to express your ideas with confidence in English?
  • Do you give in when confronted by difficult colleagues, clients or bosses with strong personalities?
  • Do you struggle to respond with confidence during meetings?

Whether you need to deal with difficult colleagues, clients or family members, this dynamic and highly interactive Assert Yourself program will equip you with knowledge, skills and tools to express yourself more skillfully.

Assertive communication helps to reduce misunderstanding. It also improves the quality of your relationships – with your colleagues, clients, boss, partner, parents, teens and friends.

If you said “Yes, that’s me,” you can benefit from the Assert Yourself program

When you want to:

  • Express yourself more confidently and clearly
  • Be taken seriously
  • Stand your ground, with dignity and integrity
  • Set limits and say ‘No’ respectfully and firmly
  • Respond appropriately to criticism – without caving in or lashing out
  • Find and express your true voice
  • Give and receive constructive feedback more effectively
  • Make effective requests, to things get done right, the first time
  • Feel more empowered

This program will equip you with proven strategies and skills to achieve all of the above!
