Being able to express yourself clearly and assertively both in the workplace and in your relationships is beneficial to you, your employer and those you have relationships with. But we are often not used to saying what we think, feel or want, and can fear coming across as aggressive. There are many misunderstandings about what assertiveness is and we will address these in the workshop.

Anyone who wishes to improve their skills in self-expression in the workplace and in interpersonal relationships.
In this workshop you will learn:
- To define assertiveness
- To understand the difference between assertive and aggressive
- To develop skills in assertive communication
- To learn to say no when it is needed
- To start learning how to express feelings, both positive and negative
