Training: Assertiveness and confidence at work

01 October @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm, 10 St Bride Street, London, EC4A 4AD

Why should you attend this course?

We all have to deal with situations at work that we find challenging.  It might be asking for a pay rise, or standing up to a colleague, or simply putting our point across at a meeting.  If we don’t feel confident about speaking up and representing ourselves, then no-one will do it for us and we risk missing out.  It can also make work tough if we can’t be ourselves, as it’s not fun hiding  who you really are and what you’d actually like to say.  This course is for people who would like to improve their skills in these situations and get their voices heard in the workplace.

We will be looking at techniques for being assertive and speaking up, and also putting these into practice during the day.

Who should attend?

Staff and managers at all levels who want to improve their presence at work, and deal with challenging situations in a better way.   This is also relevant for individuals who want to be better at dealing with people who are more senior to them.
