Have you ever felt powerless, unhappy, or inhibited because you fear alienating or angering people in your life? Does your self-esteem sometimes suffer because you struggle to say no when you really want to? Every day we find ourselves in situations where we need to be assertive: to people at work, to family, and in our social lives. Being more assertive has the power to profoundly transform our lives by enabling us to say yes to what counts - our own needs, values and priorities.
This practical workshop will give you anecdotes and proven exercises to help you understand and use the techniques of assertive communication. Learn how to communicate your personal power and positively assert what you want in your life in 2013 and beyond!
