Assertiveness & Self Confidence Workshop

Course Duration 1 Day 

Self-confident and assertiveness are two skills that are crucial for success in life. If you do not feel worthy, and/or you do not know how to express your self-worth when communicating with others, life can be difficult. These skills will provide opportunities and benefits to your participants in their professional and personal lives.

The Assertiveness and Self-Confidence workshop will give participants an understanding of what assertiveness and self-confidence each mean (in general and to them personally) and how to develop those attitudes in their day-to-day lives. These skills will encompass many aspects of your participant’s lives and have a positive effect on all of them.

  • Define assertiveness and self-confidence, and list the four styles of communication
  • Describe the types of negative thinking, and how one can overcome negative thoughts
  • Building confidence and assertiveness through questioning and listening skills.
