Assertiveness isn’t an option for success-minded managers – it’s a must-have skill.

Course Description


That’s because as a manager, it’s your job to get the best possible results through others day in and day out. To get great results, you’ve got to be authoritative without steamrolling people … make your points powerfully without coming across as pushy … gain cooperation and commitment without being heavy-handed … resolve conflicts without losing your cool.

In other words, to be a great manager today,
you’ve got to be skilled in assertiveness.

Learn to manage with greater confidence and authority
Assertiveness Skills for Managers & Supervisors is a powerful one-day seminar designed to provide you with the communication essentials you need to manage with greater confidence and authority. Through interactive exercises, insightful discussions, and activities, you’ll master people skills and assertive communication techniques guaranteed to give you an edge when you deal with people, problems, and situations that once caused you stress.

You’ll learn how to negotiate better, so you’ll be able to win time, resources, and the backing of upper management for your department.

Plus, this seminar will give you dozens of problem-solving techniques for handling interdepartmental conflicts with tact so that you can reach compromises that are “win-win” solutions for everyone involved. You’ll also build solid strategies for protecting your authority as a manager – without making enemies along the way.
