Assertive Communication Skills For Women (Perth)

Corporate Communication Experts

Event outline

Presented by: Violet Dhu

Honest, genuine and authentic communication has been found to be the number one communication trait required for effective leadership. However a common pattern in people’s communication, particularly women, is the lack of awareness and capacity to be assertive when communicating. Assertive communication will help you reduce workplace conflict, help you negotiate, speak up at meetings and deal with difficult conversations. In turn these skills will enhance your self-esteem, increase your confidence and reduce your fear and anxiety. Do you find it difficult to be assertive? Do you find it difficult to say no? Do you say what you mean? Do you handle conflict in the workplace?

This workshop is designed to help women who want to develop their self-confidence and communicate effectively and assertively with work colleagues at all levels.
