Assertiveness Skills


If you lay yourself out like a doormat, people will walk all over you!

Walked on


 Being Assertive with others will help you get what you want
in a non-hostile way and without infringing on the rights of others.

Assertiveness is a learnt behaviour that many people don’t find easy and can be mistaken for pushiness or even aggressiveness. However, these very different communication techniques can often lead to vastly different outcomes and impact others in negative ways.

The Motiv8 Development one day Assertiveness course will give you the skills you need to;

  • build your self esteem
  • gain greater respect from others
  • improve your confidence
  • negotiate more effectively
  • handle conflict proactively
  • communicate successfully
