About the course

Would you like to communicate more confidently, effectively and assertively with others?

This one-day course aims to develop your confidence in expressing ideas, opinions, wants and needs while building productive workplace relationships.

Participants will reflect and explore communication styles, behaviour types and behaviour patterns. You will learn to recognise assertive and non- assertive behaviours.   You will also explore how to identify barriers to assertive behaviour and how to respond assertively in the workplace.  These skills will support processes for managing to resolve conflict in the workplace.

  • Identify assertive and non assertive behaviours.
  • Reflect, analyse and monitor their own behaviours.
  • Approach conflict constructively.
