Assertiveness Skills

”We teach people how to treat us.”

– Dr.Phil


Every day we interact with others – in the workplace, at home, in our communities. When issues arise we deal with them – sometimes effectively, sometimes not. This course is designed to help you reflect on the manner with which you deal with problems, assess your effectiveness, and learn skills that will help you develop an assertive style under pressure. You will also learn how to strike a balance between asserting/speaking to express your perspective and listening to understand the other person’s perspective.

Topics Included:

  • Doing a self-assessment / Getting to know yourself
  • Differentiation between assertive, aggressive, passive and passive-aggressive styles and an exploration of the advantages and disadvantages of each.
  • Elements of assertive communication
  • Striking a balance between asserting and listening
  • Developing communication skills to assert yourself
  • Improving your ability to listen and explore other people’s perspective
  • Introduction to an assertion model



The learning environment includes instruction, exercises, small and large group discussions, and lots of hands-on practice. My goal is to help you develop your skills and sense of confidence in a non-threatening small group setting.


One day – 7 hours.
