Assertiveness at Work
Develop the Confidence and Skills to be Positive and Effective in the Business Environment Whatever the Demands of the Situation
Are you in need of a more effective and dynamic way to communicate with people in your workplace? Do you sometimes have difficulty in differentiating between being assertive and being aggressive towards others? Are you sometimes labelled as demanding and overbearing? Do you have a hard time speaking up in the workplace or when you do does it lead to misunderstandings and miscommunication? Are you having a hard time saying “no”?
This course will teach you proper techniques to be more assertive in the workplace. It would teach you the difference between being aggressive, submissive and assertive and how you can apply them in situations within your organisation and when dealing with external clients.
The course also outlines methods on how you could develop a practical, personal action plan on how to deal with difficult people, how to manage feedback and how to use assertive behaviour to achieve win-win situations.
Every one of our training programs is uniquely designed and tailored to meet your specific circumstances and objectives. Here are some examples of the type of topics and material that would be covered in your Assertiveness at Work training…

For any great organisation the people are its most valuable asset. Your people are employed to achieve your business goals. The Upfront Communications ‘Assertiveness at Work’ training is an essential ‘enabler’ for bringing out the best in your team. Common business benefits as reported by previous course attendees include:
- A boost to workplace productivity as all staff (not just those who are naturally assertive) play a fuller role, contribute more and live up to their potential
- Potential problems are dealt with sooner and more effectively, rather than left unattended, when staff are confident to raise potentially difficult issues
- Front line staff are better equipped to deal with customers, especially those who are more demanding
- Better results from sales staff when pursuing business
- Staff dealing with suppliers and other outside parties perform more effectively and with greater confidence
It’s no exaggeration to say that EVERY member of staff will benefit from this training. We’ve had thousands of people from varying skill levels from frontline right through to CEOs complete and enjoy the course. People who are already fairly assertive will develop new skills. Others will gain greater confidence and be able to play a fuller more productive role. Others who will benefit include…
- Frontline Staff in Contact With Customers or Prospects
- Sales Professionals and Sales Support Staff
- In House Support Staff
- Customer Service Staff
- Executive Assistants and Account Executives
We can custom-tailor the course to every level and audience depending on your requirements.
Following an initial consultation with your business we will develop an understanding of the skill level mix of the group and the desired business outcomes that you are seeking. From there we will custom tailor the training to meet your business. We will save you time and money by ‘coming to you’ and providing the training on your premises or at a location determined to be ideal for your business and desired outcomes. The Assertiveness at Work training is a 1 day program.
Typically, we suggest up to 12 people from your organisation can attend the training at any one time. This limit is suggested because of the ‘hands on’ nature of the training and the individual feedback given to each person attending the training. Larger groups can be accommodated, however, and we can structure the training to best meet your requirements.
