This course will explore what assertion is and how it can be applied. Assertion is often assumed to be a negative and perhaps even aggressive technique associated with those who shout louder than the rest. In reality, assertion when done correctly does not fall on the passive-aggressive spectrum at all, but is an entirely different behaviour which can be an incredibly effective tool in the hands of a manager or leader. In fact we have found that managers who execute assertion correctly are well liked and respected by their team members, and often highly proactive and effective in their roles. This course is designed to give delegates a new confidence and dynamism as they understand how assertion differs from other forms of behaviour and how to apply it in the workplace.

Let’s face it, if you’ve reached any kind of executive level within an organisation, you can’t be too bad at what you do! It’s also probably true to say that over the years you’ve had your fair share of management training. You’ve seen the different models come and go, you’ve adopted some, adapted others and thrown out those that haven’t worked, and finally you’ve settled into the stylistic groove that has worked best for you.
How coaching can help your organisation thrive
Engaging in a coaching for your organisation can seem a little daunting, if not a little expensive.
