Who Signs Up for Personalised Assertiveness Training and Assertiveness Coaching?
Assertiveness is a key personal and interpersonal skill.
Many professionals, managers, leaders and other executives find that assertiveness training or assertiveness coaching helps them build better relationships, reduce stress and get ahead in their careers.
What is Assertiveness ?
Assertiveness skills are helpful in many work situations; whether dealing with your boss, colleagues, subordinates, customers, clients and suppliers.
If you're assertive it means you're able to express what you feel and what you want in a clear, reasonable and open way, without undermining your own or others’ rights.
Those who behave assertively always respect the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of other people as well as their own. Assertiveness skills can enable you to act in your own best interests and to stand up for yourself without undue anxiety.
When people have not developed assertiveness skills they may interact with their colleagues in passive, aggressive or passive-aggressive ways. By doing so they may trample over the rights of others and destroy relationships or they may feel eternally ‘put upon’, and risk lowering their self-esteem.

You have a hard time saying ‘no’

What is Personalised Assertiveness Training and Coaching?
Assertiveness training courses typically teach assertiveness skills to mixed groups of people. Such courses can give you the 'basics' of assertiveness.
However, it’s likely that everybody in the group will find that some of the assertiveness strategies, tools and techniques will work for them and some of them won’t. After the course, attendees may still feel unprepared to be assertive in some situations. This is because our ability to assert ourselves is influenced by the personality we inherit, our upbringing and our life experiences.

In addition, I will explore your individual patterns of assertiveness or non-assertiveness.
