Do you avoid speaking up, are worried you may upset others, or are unsure how to articulate your message?
Do you often feel you fail to get your opinions heard or that people readily dismiss or undermine your views?
Do you typically consider others’ feelings, having made too many compromises in the past that have left you feeling unfulfilled and empty?
Do you dread asking for what you want in negotiations?
Do you feel underappreciated, discouraged, and powerless at work?
Being assertive isn't synonymous with being aggressive or unfriendly. It is the ability to express yourself confidently, firmly, fairly, and empathetically.
If assertiveness has never been your strong suit — or if you sometimes wonder if you're being too rigid, soft, or flexible — you'll welcome the training this webinar provides.
Assertive communication is a valuable skill for emerging leaders, new managers, and people who are more introverted in social situations.
When you know how to communicate assertively, you can say “no” without feeling guilty, set boundaries to protect your time, priorities, and goals, articulate requests clearly and confidently, and deal with awkward situations easily.
This webinar will show you how to be more assertive, so you can stand up for yourself and become a strong and confident communicator. You will learn how to ask for information without seeming combative and identify and present your options or opinions without arguing positions.
If you have trouble in the workplace with speaking and asserting yourself with self-confidence and professionalism, attend this webinar to learn how to:
