We have all said yes to an engagement or assignment we didn’t want to do. Although unassertive behaviour comes with the perks of avoiding possible conflict, over time it can be a recipe for perpetual disappointment. Why settle for disappointment when all of us have the potential to be assertive?
During this interactive workshop, we will work on strengthening your “A” muscle by making the distinction between passiveness, aggressiveness, and assertiveness. After exploring why you react the way you do in certain situations, we will discuss some key phrases for you to have in your back pocket and practice your assertiveness so that you can feel more comfortable when you say no.
