Assertiveness program

Assertiveness is needed at times when you 're dealing with challenging people. By being assertive, an individual speaks and behaves in a manner that protects his/her rights, while also valuing the rights of others. It is a form of treating the self and others with appreciation.

In our program, the individual will learn:

  • How his/her thoughts have an impact on his/her actions
  • How to identify the qualities, skills, and values that distinguish him/her from others
  • How to accept mistakes and work toward correcting them
  • How to maintain confidence while dealing with others
  • How to manage anger
  • Skills for perseverance and initiative to achieve success
  • How to achieve greater goals by setting small ones
  • Problem-solving skills
  • How to deal with others when being harassed or ridiculed
