Mentoring and Development Training: Interpersonal Skills for Life and Work (Assertiveness skills you need)
Assertiveness skills you need is a training course that will teach you to be assertive and therefore increase your self-confidence in communicating with others.
People are social beings, constantly requiring and seeking to communicate in the workplace and in their personal lives. Assertive behaviour rests on a foundation of respect for yourself and others. As well as knowing your basic rights, and expressing those rights in ways that do not violate the rights of others.
Assertiveness skills that you need training course include open and honest communication and feeling comfortable doing so. Assertiveness is a means of taking ownership of the situation. It also provides the other person with the chance to understand your point of view. This provides the other person time to modify or change their behaviour to ensure the goodwill and integrity of the relationship.
“Assertiveness skills you need” training course
This course aims to:
- To broaden your assertive repertoire by providing greater response choices, that results in increased self-confidence.
- Improve both your verbal and non-verbal communication skills to increase your professional and personal effectiveness.
- Recognise your personal rights and that of others to take greater responsibility for the situation
Assertive behaviour is a balance between being aggressive and submissive. It is expressing your feelings, needs and ideas, and standing up for your legal rights in ways that do not violate the rights of others.
Assertive behaviour respects yourself and values your personal opinions and needs while respecting the rights, values and beliefs of others.
Many people are not aware of their personal rights or value them. Some people operate with myths that they have been brought up with. Myths that are ingrained into their thinking and behaviour, which may not always be right. These myths prevent you from living your life to your full enjoyment, or from reaching your potential at work.
If you apply these personal rights at work and in your personal life you will have a foundation of positive relationships. This promotes effective communication and assertive behaviour. When you assert your self, you live a life of respect towards your self and others. You will ensure that the rights of others are not violated in the process. This is the basis of assertive behaviour that gives you positive and fulfilling relationships.
