Building Assertive Communication Skills
Who said learning can't be fun?
Express yourself, your wants, feelings and expectations concerning others. Learn to say NO, and set healthy boundaries. Give someone feedback. Check-in with yourself and develop skills to help you regulate your emotions.
Assertive communication is the most desired communication style: but how do you build it when you find yourself playing too small in your relationships, career, and personal matters? Maybe you realize you have been more passive than you would like, and now you're ready to take a proactive step towards being more assertive.
When you try to say "no" to people, you might find that it's too overwhelming - EEK! So, you pull back, hide in your comfort zone, and feel like you're getting walked all over.
In this interactive class, we'll explore assertive communication. From body language to eliminating "weak" speech, to saying "no", to clearly expressing your wants and needs. We'll start building assertive communication skills and learning techniques that will help you step into your power.

Communication plays a crucial role in our lives. It's the glue that brings people together and keeps our relationships strong. This is why WHAT we say matters, but HOW we say it matters even more. When we talk, it's not just about the words we utter. It's a whole-person effect. Effective communication is mainly about our body language, tone of voice and the overall vibe we give off.
In recent years, interpersonal communication skills have been in high demand. This is mainly because good communicators tend to be great persuaders. And in life, virtually every interaction is a form of negotiation. But, regrettably, many of us didn't get the opportunity to learn how to negotiate on our behalf.
Assertive communication isn't just a skill. It's one of the main character-building pillars that give you the needed advantage. Being self-assertive and decisive isn't just for leaders and CEOs. It's a skill everyone can benefit from. As a matter of fact, it's one of the most effective self-empowerment tools, and this is why we've decided to offer it here at Skillbuildr.
In this highly engaging and interactive class, you'll get an opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and flex those self-assertive muscles. As a result, you'll be more confident, resilient, adaptable and more at ease with your own decisions. You'll learn to think on your toes while having loads of fun!
Generally, people aren't very comfortable being in the spotlight, speaking up in front of large groups or expressing their thoughts and ideas openly. We fear being judged, rejected and criticized. And so, it's only natural that we struggle with this.
