Event description


If any of these statements apply to you then you’ll probably get a lot out of this seminar:

  • I’m not always getting what I want in life and work
  • I spend too much time trying to keep other people happy
  • I don’t always stand up for myself and what I really want
  • I have a hard time disagreeing with people whose views I don’t agree with
  • It is difficult for me to say no and I often end up taking on tasks that I don’t want to do
  • Because I don’t want to appear aggressive I may be too passive in my interactions
  • Sometimes I flip and become aggressive if I feel that someone is taking advantage of me
  • Delegating is not my strongest point and frequently I do more than my share of the work
  • It is tough for me to speak up and share my opinions, especially if they are somewhat controversial.
  • I know I need to promote myself more at work but I don't like marketing myself

What we'll do

In some cultures Assertiveness is not easy to define because a word doesn’t exist for it. Assertiveness lies on a spectrum between passiveness and aggressiveness. When you’re too passive people may take advantage of you. When you’re too aggressive this can affect your relationships. A balance between the two will serve you well. But first you need to have a sense of where you are on that spectrum. 

Therefore, we’ll define and explore what Assertiveness is and what it isn’t.

How we'll do it 

You’ll get a free assessment of your Assertiveness to guide your focus during the seminar*. You may have your own specific things to address and these will be different from other participants. 

The session will be highly interactive so you’ll get to practice some tools and techniques for improving your assertiveness.

Please bring a pen and notebook so you can take your learning back to your workplace or wherever you want to be more assertive.

Your Guide 

Gerry Murray is widely regarded as one of the most inspiring personal and professional development trainers and coaches around. He has helped thousands of people find their way in life and work. A recent participant described Gerry as follows:

"It is rare to come across such an experienced talent like Gerry. I had the pleasure to take part in several of his workshops during the last 2 years and got to know several of his incredible clients. 

His ability to get participants engaged in his workshops and to communicate complex processes in a simple way is outstanding. That skill often takes years to develop among professionals, but it seems to come perfectly naturally to him. 

There is always a touch of humour and fun in his workshops that make it a pleasure to be part of. I am glad to take this opportunity to recommend Gerry to anyone who takes personal development serious and I am looking forward to learn and work with him in the future.”

*You’ll have to complete an online questionnaire beforehand and must do this before the 21st March 2016
