Course programme

ILM Endorsed Training Course
This exclusive training course has been developed by Activia and endorsed by the ILM -- Europe's foremost provider of leadership and management qualifications.
The training can be delivered as a stand-alone course, or can count towards a Vocationally Related Qualification (VRQ) as part of our ILM-endorsed programme of management training.
Why Assertiveness Training?
Do you:
  • Find yourself saying 'yes' to people's requests when you really want to say 'no?'
  • Bottle up or fail to express your discontent, even if you think it's justified?
  • 'Give in' to others for a while, but eventually become irritable or even angry?

Assertivenessis the ability to express yourself and your rights in an open, non-confrontational way. Yet assertiveness does not come naturally because we have all learned passive behaviours to stave off confrontation.
When you train with Activia, we teach you how to apply appropriate assertive communication skills in your day-to-day work situations: you will acquire practical techniques which will increase your effectiveness and productivity, and help you gain control of daily activities.
