- There is a direct correlation between selfconfidence and assertion. When we acquiesce to the beliefs of others, our lack of self-belief can kick in. We may even perceive that we don’t have a viable alternative, based on low levels of esteem we may hold about ourselves.
- Assertiveness requires sound judgement. Understanding when to be accommodating by taking a more flexible approach to a situation or a colleague’s point of view and when it is appropriate to articulate a strengthening argument or an altogether different point of view is a skill that can be learnt.
- This course enables learning and practice in a safe environment, helping you to gain confidence in making positive, proactive and assertive statements in any given situation.
