“Assertiveness is not what you do, it’s who you are.” Shakti Gawain
- Understanding differences between assertive, passive and aggressive behaviours
- Feel confident to ask for what they want and express their opinion
- Expressing their opinion clearly and with confidence
Those who are truly assertive believe not only in the validity of their own views and requests but also of the views and requests of others. Therefore this half-day session will focus on an exploration what an assertive attitude is and how it will influence behaviour. This will be achieved through a blend of case study and situation-based discussion to share knowledge and skills, tutor input, paired work and practise of assertive behaviours.
