Mentoring with Yvonne Collier: Assertive Conversations
Monthly Event - First Wednesday of every month: 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (AEDT)
Neutral Bay, NSW
Do you want to become more assertive? To speak up more? Or maybe you recognize you could benefit from a more empathic tone of voice and manner?
Yvonne Collier facilitates a very interactive and practical 90 minute session on the FIRST WEDNESDAY evening of the month in Neutral Bay. 6pm - 7.30pm. Fun and free for first time attendees. Thereafter a nominal fee.
Format: Each person writes their current challenge(s) around assertiveness and all are placed in a hat. Someone in the group picks one challenge. Yvonne facilitates the group to discover what works for them, and demonstrates, coaches and guides ideas, techniques and possibilites to handle the specific situation. It is very practical and experiential and fun! We cover as many 'real' situations as possible in the 90 minutes.
Two of Yvonne's favourite words are 'it depends'! And it does. The 'best solution' in the assertive skills tool kit depends on who is involved, their past experiences, culture, needs, emotions, importance, outcomes . . . and lots more!
Non prescriptive, flexible, full of potential and very successful.

Yvonne Collier, Maddison Training
Yvonne is a master facilitator, coach and learning and development specialist. She is passionate about helping people become more assertive. Her definition of assertiveness is to balance Advocacy (the ability to speak up) and Empathy (to understand the feelings of self and others) under the umbrella of Respect.
She helps people with timid behaviours gain the confidence to stand up and speak up, and those showing aggressive behaviours how to tone it down and develop more empathy.
Yvonne coaches 1:1 and runs in-house company programs through Maddison Training. She runs public courses in Sydney: two days and one day with Sydney University Centre for Continuing Education and half days with North Sydney Chamber of Commerce.
Enjoy Yvonne's experiential learning style, that's practical and inspirational, outcome focused and fun filled, as you become more confident and expand your 'assertive skills' tool kit.
