Courses for Everyone, Effective Communication Skills

Assertiveness & Confidence Training for Women

Our Assertiveness & Confidence training -for Women is for women who want to communicate more confidently and persuasively in a style that is comfortable for you. Do people say that you are ‘too nice’? Do you feel that this maybe diminishing the respect you get from others in the workplace?

Or conversely, would you describe yourself as ‘overly assertive’ or even ‘aggressive’ which gives you short-term co-operation but long-term resistance?

Do you want to treat others with openness, directness and respect and get the same from them?

Our Assertiveness & Confidence training -for Women is limited to a maximum of 12 delegates. This is to ensure that our experienced trainer has the time to assist you. This could be with any personal complex points which may arise throughout the training or advise on a problem you already have.

This course will focus on the importance of communication skills in the workplace. Whether that be face to face, on the telephone or over email you will explore the impact that verbal, vocal and body language have when communicating via these mediums.

You will take a short survey to identify your dominant communication style and then explore the characteristics of your style along with those of your fellow delegates. An emphasis will be put on what constitutes assertive and confident behaviour and you will pick up tips on how to assert yourself and deal with challenging people and situations.

Your trainer will equip you with coping mechanisms and a number of “nuggets” to take away which will give you the confidence and self-belief to communicate more assertively in the workplace.
