Exploring the notion of assertiveness, learning how to be more purposefully assertive and recognising our individual past and current blockers.

Can you recall a situation where you weren't as assertive as you'd have liked to have been? When we can, we often feel frustrated as a result, that we've let things slide — and created future complications within our relationships. This focussed and practical session is about digging deeper into the idea of assertiveness — and exploring ways we can assert ourselves positively; rather than coming across as passive, passive-aggressive or aggressive. 

We'll focus on:

• Defining assertiveness
• Communicating in a more effective way in specifically difficult situations
• The difference between assertive, passive, passive-aggressive & aggressive behaviours
• The role of triggers is preventing assertiveness
• Transactional analysis as a method of improving difficult communication.
