Check out a sneak peek of this webinar!


Have you ever left a meeting frustrated because you couldn’t get your point across? Are you often misunderstood by your team, peers, or superiors? Do you bulldoze over the thoughts, feelings, and opinions of others, or just let things go and appear as if you don’t care? Have you heard people say, “communication is the root of most interpersonal problems”? There’s a lot of truth to it! Communication is a word that is frequently thrown around but what does it really mean and how do we increase its effectiveness? Assertive communication is thought to be the most effective communication style and widely accepted by managers and leaders. However, assertive communication is also a term used freely and without understanding. Most professionals seek an assertive communication style because of its effectiveness but few know how to successfully adopt it.

The way we communicate is how co-workers, customers, and partners form opinions about us. There are three primary components to assertive communication. Do you know what they are and how to communicate with power, impact, and clarity? There are also several benefits to being assertive. The top two will change how you feel about yourself and others. The interactive live webinar will allow you to participate in polling, Q&A, thought-provoking prompts, and shared experiences. Get an edge on leadership and life by fine tuning your skills and integrating an assertive communication style.
