In order to be effective in getting what you want and need, how you communicate both verbally and non-verbally will matter a great deal. Assertiveness is neither aggression, nor passivity/docility. It is the art of clearly stating what you want and need in a congruent manner. This course offers several examples of what to do, how to do it and what not to do. It also deals with common workplace problems and shows how assertiveness increases your chances of successful decisions, negotiations and conflict resolution.
