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.
