Up your game with this one-day Communication and Assertiveness workshop. This workshop is all about stepping up. Stepping up to the mark at work, keeping up with expectations and upping your performance. Targeted at people who find it uncomfortable speaking up, standing up, influencing, managing and communicating upward, having difficult conversations or dealing with conflict in the workplace.
Do you leave work meetings or conversations often feeling frustrated, believing you did not deal with situations appropriately, you did not say what you truly wanted to say or that it just came out wrong. If so, this workshop can help you.
This workshop is very much an exploration of the participant’s current reality in relation to these difficulties with a view to upping skills in the areas of:
- increasing awareness of both self and others
