Assertiveness course

Dealing with Difficult People and Situations

Programme Overview

One of the most important skill sets to develop in business is being able to deal confidently with a difficult situation or person. Using and building on our resilience skills to develop an assertive and positive mindset, we will explore how our behaviour can be used to meet yours and other’s needs effectively.

We will challenge traditional perceptions of ‘difficult people’, increase confidence in handling difficult situations and look at practical solutions to conflict scenarios.
