The ability to be confident and assertive is essential to progress within a work environment. However, situations arise in the workplace where it may be more challenging to apply a correct level of assertiveness – sometimes the greatest challenge is saying no! Everyone faces different obstacles when it comes to being assertive – conquering them is key to producing candid and productive working relationships.  In this workshop participants will explore the psychological barriers to being assertive and how these can be overcome to create successful outcomes, including how to say “no” and get it right.

They will also consider what healthy assertion looks like – after all, assertiveness comes in many forms and is not   simply about being the loudest person in the room! This knowledge is then embedded with the opportunity to practice applying it to a real-life situation where the participant wishes to be more assertive. They will consider the mindset, approach and actions they will take to make it a success. Participants will leave with an action plan for approaching future situations such as this in the workplace, and practical tips to better manage their own level of assertiveness.
