Many people think that being assertive is only linked to saying "No". That is not true.

The truth is that assertiveness is actually the ability to behave and communicate with others in a strong and confident way. This is why it's so important for you to be assertive at work.

In this course I will teach you how to assert your position by venturing into the unknown and making use of opportunities at work.

You will learn how to capture people’s attention and convey your point of view by using the right verbal and non-verbal communication.

I will show you how to provide feedback to others properly and how to react to nasty criticism, without losing your self-confidence and self-control.

And more!

The Apology & Express Yourself
3 Lectures 11:38

In our fast- moving world, more and more people find it difficult to admit to their fallibility. They believe it would denude them, expose their defects, and therefore make it more painful and laborious in their strive for success and recognition.

The Impact of Apology - Accept your wrongdoings and be prepared to apologize

During staff meetings, some workers prefer to hide themselves in the back row. If there is only one table in the boardroom, then they maintain a solid distance from the boss or presenter.
Express Yourself - It is not what you know, but what you do with your knowledge

The voice is a tool for communication. If used properly, it will attract people’s attention. However, if misused, it may repel others and you will be ignored. During the listening process, people try to decode the verbal message that is being sent to their ears.

Manage Your Speech - 38% of the impression you make comes from your tonality
Positive Thinking & Opportunities
3 Lectures 09:49

One of the side effects of our professional life is that we encounter obstacles from time to time. We may not have influence on these drawbacks, but we can decide how to react to them.

Think Positive Part 1 - Summon the power to think positive

You are supposed to be having a meeting with an important customer or the CEO of your company. Tell yourself that it is an honor and a rare opportunity to prove yourself and become more visible.
Preview 03:53

If your goal is to assert yourself in your company, then it is essential for you to make use of those big opportunities that appear only from time to time during your career.
Opportunities - Try to excel where others have failed or have failed to try
The Comfort Zone & Human Obstacles
2 Lectures 08:06

The comfort zone is a state in which you feel secure. You accept what you have and even if there are certain things you would love to change, you remain passive because changes mean collaborating with the unknown.

Extend The Comfort Zone - You will become more visible and influential

I am continually bombarded with questions about how to be assertive to trouble makers when conducting a meeting or presentation. One of the worst thing that could happen is when an attendee begins to use his cell phone or iPad during the meeting.

Dealing With Conflicts
3 Lectures 07:03

Being assertive does not mean that you will always succeed in getting what you want and that others will always be obliging.

Conflicts Part 1 - Be prepared to acknowledge the disagreement

Are you having a hard time with one of your co-workers? Do not ridicule or belittle him behind his back.
Conflicts Part 2 - Are you having a hard time with one of your co-workers?

What are the best mannerisms to practice with a co-worker who acts verbally abusive in a cubicle environment?
Conflicts Part 3 - Mannerisms In Confrontational Workplace
Salary Negotiation
2 Lectures 05:00
Asking for a pay raise is still considered to be one of the most stressful things at work. This is because workers are afraid that they may be perceived as being too arrogant and egotistic.
Pay Raise Part 1 - Talk freely & honestly about your strengths and achievements

When you walk into your boss’s office with your pitch, you also need to be prepared to react in the case of a negative outcome.

Pay Raise Part 2 - Be prepared to react in the case of a negative outcome
Criticism & Feedback
3 Lectures 09:49
It is normal that when we achieve success at work, a few of our colleagues will become jealous and negative emotions will accumulate in their system.
Criticism - They will find flaws in your achievements at work

You have noticed that one of your subordinates is falling behind with his tasks, which is hampering the progress of the other team members. In addition, the work he was able to complete is of poor quality and requires modifications.
Feedback Part 1 - Gain control of the situation and achieve a win-win result

Managers who lack assertiveness may refrain from giving constructive feedback to their subordinates. Even though their intention is to improve the performance of their employees, they are afraid that it would annoy them, destroy the relationship and demotivate the workers.

Feedback Part 2 - Constructive feedback lies between two layers of praise
Body Language & Dress Code
4 Lectures 13:29

The key to assertiveness lies in the way you are dressed for work. Before leaving your home, make sure you look neat and tidy and your attire is suitable and in accordance with your professional environment.

Dress Like A Winner - The key to assertiveness lies in the way you are dressed

I think we all remember how our parents, grandparents and teachers reacted whenever we happened to lower our heads, slouch our shoulders, hunch our backs and walk sluggishly. They became angry and scolded us because we looked like losers.
Body Language Part 1 - Stand up straight and push your shoulders back

In order to boost your assertiveness, it is important to show people that you are open, sincere and willing to collaborate.

Body Language Part 2 - Show people that you are open and sincere

There is one more important body language that should be taken into consideration when trying to assert yourself during the interaction. It is the body angle.

Body Language Part 3 - Reveal your real thoughts and intentions

I graduated in the field of medicine in the year 1992. I have worked in various hospitals and outpatients' clinic. During the course of my studies, I became interested in the field of psychology. My profound knowledge of the function of the human brain allowed me to get better results when treating my patients.

For over twenty years I have been conducting self-improvement training, coaching sessions and counseling in international corporations. I have also worked as an interviewer in several companies and have been the personal adviser of many lucrative clients and company owners.

In addition, I possess a graduate certificate in the field of project management. This knowledge,combined with my experience in the field of psychology allows me to manage software projects for a Canadian company. As the program director I manage a multi-ethnic team of IT specialists.

My yearning to make the knowledge I possess available to everyone has driven me towards online education. Together with members of eNar Studio we are on our way to making this possible.
