Description: As we transition into leadership, many of us find it hard to take ownership of our time. It can be challenging to move from a position of “doing what we are told” to one of deciding what and when to do it, and telling others what to do too.  In this workshop, Amanda Cullen, our experienced leadership coach will help you to develop the skills for effective and assertive communication. These will help you to have the more difficult conversations.

During the workshop you will:

  • Identify where you struggle with assertiveness and what gets in your way
  • Learn some tips and techniques for saying NO when appropriate, and for negotiating alternatives
  • Explore how you delegate – what works and what doesn’t
  • Practice giving difficult feedback in a safe environment

By the end of the workshop you will: 

  • Understand why you struggle with assertiveness
  • Have some additional skills to help you handle challenging conversations
  • Be able to negotiate with senior and junior colleagues with more confidence

This workshop is for you if:

  • You currently have some leadership responsibility, whether for two or three people or a large team
  • You would love to communicate assertively so as to:
    • Feel confident in negotiations
    • Improve your delegation skills
    • Push back and learn to say “No”
    • Enhance your work/life balance
