6 Week Assertiveness Training
Do you avoid conflict? Do you find it hard to stand up for yourself? Do you tend to put other’s needs and feelings first, sometimes to your own detriment? Do you often feel disrespected or like people don’t take you seriously? If the answer is “Yes” to the above, you will benefit from assertiveness training.
What is assertiveness?
There is often the misconception that assertiveness means being aggressive, demanding or steam rolling over people – this can’t be further from the truth. Assertiveness is a skill that allows you to clearly express your needs, opinions and feelings in a firm but gentle manner without infringing on the rights of others. It entails standing up for yourself by teaching others how to treat you in a way that is not condescending nor prescriptive.
