Yes, Maybe, No?
You need confidence in order to get the desired outcomes from your conversations in the workplace. This course is designed to help you to become a more assertive, better communicator and increase your confidence by understanding how and when to apply assertive behaviour in a professional environment.
This course is fully CPD Accredited - equivalent to 12 hours.
About the course
The aim of this course is to increase your levels of assertive behaviour, enabling you to be a better communicator and increasing your confidence.
By introducing you to a range of communication techniques and approaches, you will have the opportunity to assess yourself, practice your skills in a safe and supportive environment and develop an Action Plan to improve your performance. In particular, you will learn how to approach difficult situations and when assertiveness is appropriate.
On completion, you will have gained increased confidence in the ability to make decisions, developed techniques to enhance communications and the ability to use both verbal and non-verbal behaviours to assert yourself and positively influence others.
A CPD qualification offers significant benefits to professionals and their employers by helping them to:
- Promote career advancement, development and career resilience
- Demonstrate a commitment to high professional standards, delivering effectiveness and high levels of professional performance
- Increase consumer and client satisfaction by ensuring an ethical approach to business
- Be consistently committed to lifelong learning
I would highly recommend the Assertiveness Skills course to anyone thinking of doing it and would confidently say that everyone in that room with me for the two day course gained a huge amount from it.
