Event Details

This program is suitable for adults.

Session 1 - Your Calm, Centred and Confident Self - Assertiveness

Ever thought of the perfect reply to that cutting putdown – only it’s 12 minutes or 12 hours too late? Ever sat in a meeting and wished you had the confidence to put forward your point of view? Ever been afraid to speak your mind in case you offend or upset someone?

Many of us struggle with finding the confidence to assert ourselves. And if we fail to communicate to others what’s important to us; we risk never being understood and never achieving the things that matter the most to us. Understanding how to assert ourselves in calm, reasonable and no-fuss ways is one of the keys to happier relationships and workplaces.

This lecture will explore the difference between assertion, aggression, submission and the role of politeness. It will highlight the thoughts and feelings that prevent us from being assertive and how to effectively and simply challenge these ingrained habits and become calm, centred and confident.


Presented by Rhiân Williams, Dispute Management Services .
