Assertiveness Workshop

Being liked at work is fine until it means you find it difficult to say to people what you need to say, without feeling awkward. This one-day workshop allows participants to practice the skills of being assertive in a wide variety of situations. It also gets them to examine the beliefs that people have about not being assertive and explores ways of challenging those beliefs.
