Why Assertiveness Training?
Assertiveness is the ability to express yourself and your rights in an open, non-confrontational way. Yet assertiveness does not come naturally because we have all learned passive behaviours to stave off confrontation.
When you train with Activia, we teach you how to apply appropriate assertive communication skills in your day-to-day work situations: you will acquire practical techniques which will increase your effectiveness and productivity, and help you 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.
Who Should Attend
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.
