Assertiveness Training Workshop (1/2 Day)

Assertiveness skills include expressing and accepting personal rights and responsibilities, making direct requests and refusals, determining limitations, reinforcing verbal messages with non-verbal ones, giving and receiving praise, expressing disagreement and anger, and confronting others. These skills contribute to an employee’s ability to succeed in attaining personal and career goals.
