Everyday Assertiveness

Why do some people get more attention than others? Why won’t your children listen to you? Why does your ex let you down? Why do keep losing your temper? Why do you feel uncomfortable and awkward? How come you’re always beating yourself up about things that don’t seem to bother other people?

You may think that other people are born with a mystery skill, but the answer may be to do with “assertiveness” and it’s something we can all learn. This course will tell you what it is and give you some tips on how to recognise it and use it in your day-to-day life.
