Assertiveness Skills

An understanding of our relationships is important and why certain people bring out particular triggers. If we learn to be assertive we communicate more effectively and our relationships improve.  The course is designed so you can discover how to use assertiveness skills to enhance your interpersonal abilities and increase confidence.  Being assertive is sometimes confused with aggression; however on this one day training course you can learn different techniques which respect both your needs, and those of the person with whom you are communicating.


The Oxford English dictionary defines 'assert' as: 'maintain, declare one's claim to rights' and 'assert oneself' as: 'insists on one's rights'.
