Course Summary

Building self-confidence and assertiveness is probably a lot easier than you think. 'Non-assertive' people (in other words 'normal people') do not generally want to transform into being excessively dominant people. When most people talk about wanting to be more assertive, what they usually really mean is:

  • How do I build, boost and develop my self-confidence?
  • How can I become more able to resist the pressure and dominance of excessively dominant people?
  • How can I stand up to bullies (or one bully in particular)?
  • How can I exert a little more control in situations that are important to me?

Your ability to effectively articulate your thoughts and ideas is critical to your success in any endeavour in and out of the workplace. This course provides methods and techniques to communicate with increased confidence and to present yourself more assertively in order for you to make a powerful, positive impression on people.
