Assertiveness Training

What is assertiveness?

Assertiveness is the extent to which a person is able to express their needs, wants, expectations, feelings, opinions and beliefs in direct, honest and appropriate ways, as well as exercise their legitimate authority in order to get a team, group or individual to accomplish requested tasks or activities.

This course is highly recommended for aggressive people. Participants will learn the difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness and they will learn how to manage their emotions, without shame or judgement.

Success Factory’s training model is designed to facilitate positive change through meaningful cognitive and emotional paradigm shifts by identifying and changing limiting beliefs. This way participants buy into the training fully and change their behaviour.

Beliefs are the rules that govern your behaviour. Your beliefs may empower and allow you to be the best version of yourself and live your values but they may also prevent you from becoming the best version of yourself. Your beliefs filter what you see and hear, affecting how you behave in your daily life.

We change our behaviour through insight (buy-in to new information.)
