DNA Workshops: Dynamic Telephone Skills, Strategic Time Management, People Management Skills, Taming Conflict, Business Communication, Cultural Diversity, Dynamic PA/ Secretary, Professional Sales, Professional Telesales and Team Building. We also offer a variety of Motivational Talks and Topics!

This workshop teaches powerful tools for assertiveness and allows individuals to discover techniques on how to be an assertive communicator.

There are times when we tend to be too passive and more often than not there are times when we are aggressive communicators. This causes break downs in communication, conflict and ultimately weakens teams, productivity, respect levels and company profits.

Delegates will assess their areas of strength and growth in this critical skill. They will understand how social styles affect assertive behaviours and thus benefit by learning steps for conflict resolution. Overall it will enhance assertiveness skills for immediate on-the-job use!
