Course Benefits

Effective communication is key to co-operation and success within any organisation and beyond because it leads to better performance and results.

Assertive behaviour is learned and so we need to recognise our natural instincts to adopt passive or aggressive states, how this impacts on transactions with others and how we can overcome these by practicing assertive techniques.
