Why Assertiveness Training?
Learning to be assertive is an essential skill in business – it allows you to bring your ideas and points across clearly and with confidence. At Activia, we guide you to a manner that comfortably sits within the ‘pushy and annoying’ manager and the ‘doormat’ that isn’t respected by employees.
It’s all about finding the right combination – knowing when to be assertive and when to take a more flexible approach is what makes the difference. These are just some of the ways assertiveness can help your organisation:
When you train with Activia, we teach you how to apply assertive communication skills in your everyday work situations: you will acquire practical techniques which will increase your effectiveness and productivity, and help you to gain control of daily activities.
This one-day training course has been designed to give delegates the appropriate tools to assert themselves in a wide range of situations at work. They will learn how the proper use of assertive behaviour enables people to deal with work colleagues, clients, suppliers and personal contacts in a way that is productive yet maintains and improves relationships.
Anyone who wants to develop more productive working relationships with colleagues, managers/staff and clients, in a positive way that makes life easier for everybody.
Our courses have been built to give delegates easy-to-digest explanations and techniques that can be applied the minute you leave the classroom. At Activia, we’ll teach you:
Different Types of Behaviour
Business isn’t limited to processes and making sure the numbers add up. It’s also largely about being able to deal with people ¬– your staff forms the crux on which any successful organisation is built.
Assertiveness and You
This is where we’ll take you through a process of self-reflection – how does assertiveness form a part of your management style? Do you use it effectively when dealing with employees or clients?
Personal Communication Styles
There are several ways in which you can communicate – there is not a single right answer, but rather a collection of different options that can be used based on the circumstance.
Saying the Right Things
Once we’ve established an understanding of assertiveness and its place in communications, we’ll give you a template on which to build an assertive dictionary that will help you say all the right things. We’ll equip you with specific exercises to help build your knowledge and confidence.
Communication is more than just what you say – body language is often more communicative than words. Assertive body language can get your message across before you even open your mouth. We’ll teach you several techniques that will deliver instant results.
Activia is one of the UK's leading business training organisations – we have helped thousands of people to reach their potential in the workplace. These are just a few reasons why employers consistently choose us:
We have been involved in the training industry since 1995. We know exactly how to assemble course structures that fulfil maximum potential, without wasting time or resources. Having the backing of hundreds upon hundreds of past courses, we give businesses what they need.
Dedicated (and Friendly!) Training Advisors
Our trainers aren’t chosen just for their professional qualifications, but they also need to have the right personality – we want our delegates to land in a friendly atmosphere, where people feel at ease and ready to ask questions and make contributions to our sessions.
Tools and Backup
When you finish your course at Activia, that’s not the end of your learning experience! We give you the tools you need to continue the process once you’ve left. We’ll give you a personal action plan, which is a tailored programme built to get the best results for your business.

Developing Assertiveness in the Right Way
All Activia training courses have been created, reviewed and developed to ensure they provide up to date and constantly improving standards of content. Our Assertiveness training is interactive and classroom-based which maximises learning through the ability to ask questions and discuss specific issues.
Maximum class size for Developing Assertiveness courses is 10 delegates, which ensures that attendees get adequate time for personal attention from the instructor. At some of our centres, the maximum class size is 12 delegates.
Note that we never cancel our scheduled classes -- even if there are only one or two delegates -- so once you have booked, your place is assured.
Private (closed) classes can be booked at our centres, subject to the same maximum class sizes, if you want to use our facilities for your training.
For training at your offices, we can deliver classes of up to 15 delegates, though with bigger class sizes you must understand that there is less time for questions from delegates, and this may affect the quality of their experience.
How to book
Note: With non-credit card bookings you must sign and return a Booking Form before we can confirm your training.
Also note: If you are a private individual you must pay by credit card at the time of booking.
The confirmation process
Note: Please allow 1 - 2 working days for your confirmation and invoice.
What happens on the day
If you are coming to our centre, dress code is smart casual. Refreshments and a free buffet lunch will be provided, but please note that, as a training company who relies on caterers, we are unable to reliably provide for differing dietary requirements, so if you are in any doubt then please bring your own. The timetable is as follows:
Note: break times can vary according to the needs of the training, and course duration for smaller class sizes can be shorter because fewer delegates have fewer questions !
For training at your offices, this itenerary can be varied by prior arrangement.
What you get

With all Assertiveness at Work courses, you are also given 14-day access to free eLearning revision which will further help you to reinforce the lessons you have learned.
Every delegate on a Developing Assertiveness in the Right Way course also gets an Activia Training Attendance Certificate.
We can provide training in Assertiveness at any of our ten centres UK wide, or we can come to your offices if you have groups of staff who need training, this is a particularly convenient, flexible and cost effective option.
We have been training business all over the UK since 1995 and have continually developed our philosophy of high quality, flexible and cost effective provision of training in Assertiveness . This means you can be confident that we have the expertise, and the experience, to give all you need with training courses for Assertiveness.
