Assertiveness training is ideal for professionals who want to become more influential and confident in the workplace

You might want to speak up more in meetings, better handle interruptions or challenges, or convey confidence and leadership potential.

Assertiveness training can help you achieve these and many other professional goals.

Becoming more assertive takes time and consistent practice with the right guidance.

That’s why we work through a gradual process to build your confidence and cultivate assertive behavior at work.

Personalized Assertiveness Training

Customized one-on-one coaching enables us to work through your unique challenges.

Each individual is different, and each workplace has different challenges to confront.

Assertiveness in a casual startup setting with a young workforce might look very different from assertiveness in a more traditional corporate environment that skews older.

Similarly, a new manager may need a different kind of assertiveness training than a business development professional.

By doing regular coaching sessions, we will be able to get to the bottom of your core challenges, develop specific solutions, and maintain accountability.

Learn Assertiveness Principles

Coaching programs include an exploration of major principles and concepts around influence, presence and confident communication at work.

These principles are adapted to the situations you are facing: cultivating your overall presence, presenting yourself confidently in front of clients, handling pushback from your reports, dealing with difficult coworkers, contributing more actively during meetings, networking and making new professional relationships, and more.

We will analyze your specific situations at work, what is holding you back from succeeding, and how to overcome those challenges, step by step.

Practice Drills and Exercises for Becoming More Assertive

Assertive behavior must be practiced to be mastered. Coaching sessions include practice drills, exercises and roleplays that are tailored to your specific needs.

We will design practice sessions that help cultivate the exact behaviors you are going for.

We also create regular practice activities that you will pursue on your own, in your day-to-day working life. This will help you put the concepts into practice in the real world.

Mindset and Confidence

Assertiveness challenges in the workplace are often related to deeper mindset factors.

We will identify any core limiting beliefs or confidence challenges you may have, and develop exercises for shifting your mindset into a more confident, empowered state.
