Developing Assertive Communication & Leadership Skills
Life Coaching for people who want more out of life.
Learn the secrets of effective communication. Communicate your wants, needs, opinions and ideas clearly, confidently, and respectfully. Learn to say no, set healthy boundaries and transform your relationships.
Assertive communication is the most desired communication style but how can 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 toward being more assertive.
When you try to say "no" to people, you might find that it is too intimidating and overwhelming - EEK! So, you pull back, hide in your comfort zone, and feel like you're getting walked all over.
Well, no more!
In this interactive class, we'll explore assertive communication basics. 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 reclaim your power.

Communication plays a crucial role in our lives. It's the glue that brings people together and keeps our relationships strong. So, 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 the whole-person effect. Effective communication includes body language, cadence, tone of voice and the overall "vibe" we give off.
In recent years, the demand for interpersonal skills has skyrocketed. Many predict these skills will define the future of our work. A large majority of employers believe that soft skills are essential and interpersonal skills are key to business growth and success.
Since good communicators tend to be great persuaders, they're in high demand. In life, virtually every interaction is a form of negotiation. Regrettably, many did not get the opportunity to learn how to negotiate on their behalf.
Assertive communication isn't just another skill, it's one of the main character-building pillars that can give you the needed advantage. Being self-assertive and decisive isn't just for leaders and CEOs anymore. It's a skill everyone can benefit from. As a matter of fact, it's one of the most effective self-empowerment tools.
In this highly engaging and interactive class, you'll get an opportunity to build and flex those self-assertive muscles. You'll learn to be more confident, resilient, and adaptable. You'll learn to think on your toes while having loads of fun!
