Assertiveness Skills

Do what matters when it counts.

Assertiveness is a "learned" communication skill set, and the more you learn, the more you can channel your assertiveness skills toward successful behavior. This workshop provides the necessary tools. We'll analyze the pitfalls of passive, aggressive, and passive/aggressive behaviors, and each particpant will get to self-assess with a behavioral quiz during this highly interactive seminar with multiple "hands-on" activities.

With the proper understanding of positive assertiveness, you will achieve a true sense of power and comfort in each and every situation.
