Date: November 2011
Duration: 0 hours 30 minutes
Does it feel like sometimes others at work are not listening to you? Or if they are listening to you, they don't act on what you say? Is it hard for you to get people's attention? Do you say "yes" when you would prefer to say "no?" If these and related issues have been gnawing at you, perhaps you need to be more assertive.
You're not alone. If it's always been hard for you to get the attention of others, to be heard, or to be followed, take heed. Many people feel the same way. It seems it's becoming harder and harder to be heard. Why? Because we live in an over-communicated, over-informed, overly noisy society. Coworkers have greater difficulty getting the true attention of their fellow coworkers. Employees have greater difficulty getting the attention of their bosses. Partners are finding it increasingly arduous to get the attention of each other.
If you feel you need the extra edge in day-to-day situations with others, you've come to the right place. This program will focus on helping you develop positive assertiveness, actually enabling you to program-or reprogram-yourself for interpersonal and professional success.
