Have trouble saying no or keeping your temper under control?

Assertiveness is not about standing up for yourself at the expense of others nor is it about compromising your principles to placate others. Assertiveness is about respectful communication and handling potentially stressful situations by design rather than by default.

Asserting Yourself Under Pressure

This course will identify the reasons for passive, aggressive and manipulative behaviours and the reasons for such behaviours and teach assertive behaviours. Participants will have opportunities to practice assertive approaches and apply them to their own work and personal circumstances. By behaving assertively, individuals can be more positive, more creative and better able to get their jobs done effectively.
