Course Description

The ability to assertively manage your interactions with other people is essential for managers and colleagues alike, if they are to gain agreement and co-operation from others in order to achieve tasks and get things done. This course provides the necessary skills and formulas to help managers create a powerful style with colleagues and customers alike and distinguish between assertive and aggressive behaviour. Delegates will leave with the confidence in themselves, to be able to display assertiveness when required, but in a fair and non-aggressive way that will have a positive effect on others.
