Assertiveness Skills Webinar

Ready to go. 90 minute to 2 hour versions available.


Being assertive is one of the most important skills that a leader can have.

In your everyday communications at work you need to be assertive when delegating, chairing, negotiating, motivating, selling, leading, disagreeing – you name it!

This workshop concentrates on building up your assertiveness skills so no matter what position you hold you can communicate on an even footing and get your point across in a firm, concise and empowering manner.

You’ll learn how to handle challenging people and situations so you can stand up for yourself and not give in to their demands.

Holding challenging conversations is something that is sometimes avoided by managers so this webinar will provide you with the techniques in order to structure these conversations in the right way.

Being assertive during conflict situations is very important. You’ll learn how to create win-win outcomes where you get what you want and so does the other person – and if this is not achieved, how to feel comfortable and assertive during the process.


By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the difference between confidence, assertiveness and aggression
  • Hold challenging conversations
  • React to and turn around aggressive people
  • Manage and resolve conflict in the right way
