45-minute webinar

If you’re assertive you can portray a strong, confident image and put your views across while still taking other people’s opinions into account.

If you’re not assertive, especially if you become passive aggressive or aggressive, you can cause misunderstandings, frustration and even a breakdown in relationships at work.

This session will help you build confidence to be more assertive more of the time. And how to disagree without being disagreeable!
