Assertive or Aggressive? Assertiveness Skills for HR Professionals

Professionals who communicate, negotiate, and persuade effectively have always been in a position to choose their own path in the workplace.

Attend our webinar to learn how to handle the 4 most common and troublesome “assertiveness required” situations in the workplace; negotiations, emergencies, conflicts, and speaking in groups.

Learn how to ask for information without seeming combative. Plan how to identify and present your options or opinions without arguing positions.

Best of all, go home at the end of the day knowing you handled your day appropriately, confidently and competently and enjoy your time off without spoiling that time ruminating over the day’s details and interactions.

Why You Should Attend:

Do you dread asking for what you want in negotiations?
Do you often replay your workday, wondering if you said or did the right thing?
Do you agonize about determining if you are seen as assertive, and what is seen as aggressive?

Do you feel underappreciated, discouraged, powerless, most days at work? Do you feel annoyed that no one ever seems to take you seriously? Or worse, takes advantage of you? Do you feel that when you do try to stand up for yourself that you go overboard? Do you wait until you are totally fed up… and then have a melt down?

If you have trouble in the workplace with speaking and asserting yourself with self-confidence and professionalism, attend this webinar to learn how to value, celebrate and maximize your communication style to be as successful as you deserve to be in any workplace.
