What is the how to be assertive respectfully workshop?

Assertiveness is a fundamental communication skill that is used to navigate a variety of personal and professional situations.

However, when assertive communication is not used correctly it can result in a number of negative interactions that can be seen as aggressive and disrespectful to the recipient. Individuals therefore need to find the correct balance in being assertive, whilst maintaining a level of professionalism to navigate to a successful outcome.

Disrespectful communication can result in a breakdown of relationships (no matter how strong they are), decreases in trust and increases in conflict between team members and colleagues.
