Assertiveness Training Courses in Newcastle

We know that it’s tough sometimes to say no to people.  We know that sometimes people lack a little bit of self confidence and how that can affect their work and their lives.  We know that sometimes we bottle things up, when all we really want to do is express our feelings or we sometimes find it difficult to withhold our feelings and become angry.

We can help.

By attending one of our Assertiveness Training courses in Newcastle, we can provide you with the skills to deal with the points raised above.

Assertiveness is about being able to express your thoughts and feelings to others in a way that is non-confrontational.  It’s about being able to demonstrate control and confidence, no matter what the situation you face.

Assertiveness is not about being aggressive or passive, these are natural or ‘gut‘ based reactions.  Assertiveness is about taking control of your emotions and feelings, communicating with confidence and being able to ask for the things you want.  It’s about using a ‘controlled‘ reaction.

By learning how to be more assertive, you can:

  • Say no to people without feeling guilty
  • Express how you feel to to others in a non-confrontational way
  • Ask or the things that you want and need with confidence
  • Maintain control of your emotions in order to make rational decisions

When you attend one of our assertiveness training courses, you can be sure that your day will be packed full of useful ideas, techniques an approaches that will help you to become more assertive.

Your trainer will make the day fun and engaging, allowing you to learn the skills that you need in a down to earth way.  There will also be ample time for you to discuss your individual situations and also time to practice your new skills in a safe environment.

You can get the skills you need from our Assertiveness Skills Training Courses for only £249 ex VAT per person.

You can attend one of our open assertiveness training courses, or if you prefer we can run the course in house for up to 12 people.  Please contact us for more information on in-house courses.
