Assertive Communications

2 hours


In relationships and communication, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach. This webinar explores different communication styles: assertive, aggressive, passive and passive-aggressive. Participants gain an understanding of each style and the appropriate time to use each communication style. The interactive webinar starts with an assertiveness quiz, in which participants identify their strengths and weaknesses and determine areas for development. They learn the “ABCs” of assertiveness: the assertive mindset, behaviors of assertive people and challenging situations that require assertiveness.
