Full details of modules and topics covered in this one-day course
This is a one-day training course structured into 10 modules
This one-day training course has been designed to give delegates the appropriate tools to assert themselves in a wide range of situations at work. They will learn how the proper use of assertive behaviour enables people to deal with work colleagues, clients, suppliers and personal contacts in a way that is productive yet maintains and improves relationships.
Anyone who wants to develop more productive working relationships with colleagues, managers/staff and clients, in a positive way that makes life easier for everybody.
Learning to be assertive is an essential skill in business – it allows you to bring your ideas and points across clearly and with confidence. At Taylor Mason, we guide you in a manner that comfortably sits within the ‘pushy and annoying’ manager and the ‘doormat’ that isn’t respected by employees.
It’s all about finding the right combination – knowing when to be assertive and when to take a more flexible approach is what makes the difference. These are just some of the ways assertiveness can help your organisation:
- How to get your thoughts across in a clear and coherent manner
- How to mould your ‘office personality’ and how you wish to be perceived
- Knowing the difference between constructive criticism vs. insults
- When to hold back and when pushing through makes sense
- Using your body language and voice to your advantage
- To remain professional at all times, never going beyond what’s acceptable when attempting to establish authority
When you train with Taylor Mason, we teach you how to apply assertive communication skills in your everyday work situations: you will acquire practical techniques which will increase your effectiveness and productivity, and help you to gain control of daily activities.
Different Types of Behaviour
Business isn’t limited to processes and making sure the numbers add up. It’s also largely about being able to deal with people ¬– your staff forms the crux on which any successful organisation is built.
We’ll teach you how to recognise aggressive, passive and assertive behaviours. You’ll be able to adapt your behaviour depending on the situation, responding to and being able to recognise various social triggers.
Assertiveness and You
This is where we’ll take you through a process of self-reflection – how does assertiveness form a part of your management style? Do you use it effectively when dealing with employees or clients?
Personal Communication Styles
There are several ways in which you can communicate – there is not a single right answer, but rather a collection of different options that can be used based on the circumstance.
We’ll provide everything you need to know about communication, what it is, how to get it across effectively, and we’ll tailor an action plan based on your personal communication style questionnaire.
Saying the Right Things
Once we’ve established an understanding of assertiveness and its place in communications, we’ll give you a template on which to build an assertive dictionary that will help you say all the right things. We’ll equip you with specific exercises to help build your knowledge and confidence.
Communication is more than just what you say – body language is often more communicative than words. Assertive body language can get your message across before you even open your mouth. We’ll teach you several techniques that will deliver instant results.
