Discover Your Assertive Self

Who's it for?

This workshop is for you if you:

  • wish you were more confident
  • feel guilty if you say 'no' and so always put yourself last
  • need to stand up to someone in your life
  • have knee-jerk reactions you later regret

What will I gain?

  • Develop a stronger sense of self
  • Find the courage to be the person you want to be
  • Craft words and phrases to use in difficult situations
  • Learn how to be more honest with yourself and others

What's involved?

Discover Your Assertive Self is not an assertiveness 'training' as such – we don't teach assertiveness techniques. It is an innovative, interactive workshop that came about when we asked ourselves:

  • How can we help people be more assertive without giving them OUR ideas, theories and strategies about how assertiveness works?
  • How can we create the conditions for people to learn from their own experience, and the experience of others?

Our aim is for you to discover what you need to do in order to be more assertive.

We believe we all have more resources and skills than we recognise and use; that we have many strategies we can build upon — if only we knew what they were. There is no one way to be assertive which works for everyone. Because of this, the workshop will enable you to discover for yourself just what needs to happen for you to be more assertive, whatever your particular situation. Every activity is designed to encourage your very own assertive self to put in an appearance.

So join us and discover how to …

  • say 'no' and mean it
  • face up to situations and deal with them in the way you really want to
  • develop a stronger sense of self
  • find the courage to be the person you want to be, without compromising your beliefs and values
  • craft your own assertive phrases to use in difficult situations
  • be more honest with yourself and others
  • control your reactions when you feel confronted

What participants say

"This was one of the most important pieces of personal development I have ever had. The workshop enabled me to understand what assertiveness really was for me and to overcome my own personal barriers and challenges. The learnings I carried from the experience have enabled me to be far more effective in both my personal and my professional life. I would say that this workshop is an absolute must for just about anyone. Penny and Marian are strong and gentle facilitators and role models and clearly enjoyed the process as much as we did."

"Two days of discovery, a fascinating journey to connect to yourself on many levels. I am more whole as a result of spending time on myself."
Diana Blakeman

"Since the workshop I am aware of my changes every day. I had an 'assertive' talk with my boss in my annual progress review and took responsibility for my life. As a result I created a new role for myself - I am now a competence coach, and with ten other coaches will train the whole company to align the organisational perspective with the individual perspective to create a shared future!
