Course Overview

What you will learn

On this one-day Assertiveness workshop, you will learn:

  • To identify assertive and non‑assertive behaviour
  • To analyse their current behaviour patterns
  • To deal with conflict constructively
  • To learn and practice a range of techniques of assertive communication
  • To explore situations where it is difficult to behave assertively, and to develop strategies and skills to handle them more effectively

Themes covered

  • How do you communicate?
  • Identifying personal and/or work situations that present difficulty
  • Recognising assertive and non‑assertive behaviour
  • Conflict styles
  • Being assertive
  • Barriers to assertive behaviour
  • Assertive body image
  • Communicating more effectively
  • Giving and receiving compliments and criticism
  • Creating your personal action plan to use beyond the course

This female-only workshop was designed as some learners may feel more comfortable learning in an all-female environment. However, the content of this workshop is identical to our mixed gender Assertiveness one-day workshop.

Our approach to online programme delivery

The learning will be through a combination of interactive workshops delivered live through Zoom and self-guided assignments over the day. 

The Zoom sessions will focus on group interaction, discussion, exercises, and opportunities to practice the skills. The self-guided elements will focus on explaining the concepts and tools and allow for self-reflection.

You should reserve out 10am to 4.30pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact.

For Face-to-Face Live Online Learning

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

You should reserve out 10am to 4.30pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact. 

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
