This short morning course is suitable for anyone who wants to find out more about assertiveness or wants to learn to be more assertive themselves, either at work or at home, and a more in depth course is planned as a follow-up later in the year. The course will take place at Craven Clinic in Skipton with refreshments provided.
Everybody has the right to be treated fairly. Sometimes, in an effort to appear 'nice' or easy to get along with, we allow our rights to take a backseat to those of others. Sometimes this can lead to us being taken advantage of, or our voice not being heard. Assertiveness is the ability to honestly express opinions, feelings, attitudes, and rights, without anxiety, in a way that does not affect rights of others.
This introduction to assertiveness course will introduce the following aspects:
- What is assertiveness?
- Self-esteem and confidence.
- Strategies for saying no.
- Making requests.
- Gaining increased confidence and self-esteem.
- Managing conflict.
- Handling difficult people and situations.
- Building rapport.
Course materials and visualisation CD for home use are also provided. Places are limited so you are advised to book early.
