Why book this course?
Communicating assertively and with confidence is a vital skill in order to effectively convey your message. We can be the best in our role, but if we cannot communicate our wishes to others, our skills can often be undermined.
Our Assertive Communication Skills course will help you to cultivate a more effective style of business communication, both with your colleagues and your customers. You'll learn how to be more confident without being aggressive, developing an approach to conversation that will win hearts and minds.
Who is the course for?
Our Assertive Communication Skills course is ideal for anyone who wants to be more confident and assertive in their day-to-day communication.
While particularly useful for managers and other individuals who need to project confidence, the skills learned in this course can be applied in almost any role.

What will I get out of the training?
This course will give you a greater understanding of how you are perceived and how we perceive others, crucial factors when demonstrating assertiveness. Using practical examples and trainer feedback, you’ll develop a style and skill set that’s unique to you.
Often we do not get what we want because there is a mismatch between our behaviour and our message. By stepping out of yourself and recognising your own behaviour, you can learn how to improve your communication, and enhance your confidence and assertiveness.
