Assertiveness Course Overview
Our assertiveness course gives delegates the skills to be assertive in work situations. Delegates learn how to use different behaviours to deal assertively with colleagues, managers, suppliers and customers. They discover how to influence people and maintain a positive working relationship, even when someone challenges their opinion or disagrees with them.
The course is suitable for all levels of seniority. It’s beneficial for anyone who struggles to assert themselves in challenging situations and wants to be more influential in the work environment.
Here’s a brief guide to the day…
The course is relaxed and informal. You’ll be one of a small group (maximum 6 people), all of whom will be there for similar reasons to you. Mike McClement will be running the course. He’ll be able to get to know you and focus on your personal reasons for attending. You won’t find yourself under any pressure to do anything you don’t want to do during the day. There won’t be any role play or acting exercises to perform.

Why Choose Think Confidence…
Small Groups, specialist trainer and FREE post course learning resources.
Your trainer – Mike McClement – has been a personal development coach (specialising in confidence and assertiveness skills) for over 20 years. He’s the author of the best selling book, Brilliant Self-Confidence. Mike is deeply passionate about sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience; he really does want to help you build your self-confidence. He has helped thousands of people move beyond their comfort zone to create real change in their lives.
We guarantee there will only be 6 people on your course. A small group means a relaxed and informal atmosphere. We want you to feel comfortable and happy. With just 6 people, Mike can get to know you. Although each person’s overall reason for attending will be the same – to be more ‘assertive’, they will have their own personal reasons for coming too. Mike will have time to help you as an individual. This makes a huge difference; people tell us it is one of the main reasons this course is so successful.
All participants on our face-to-face courses receive FREE access to our on-line learning resources. It’s a library jam-packed full of videos, downloads and exercises. What’s more, you can access 8 Personality Tests which give a thorough insight into how you naturally come across and behave in certain situations.
