Welcome to the Assertiveness and Self-Confidence workshop. Assertiveness and self-confidence are comprised of important interpersonal communications skills and traits that can be learned and practiced. This workshop will provide you with many tips, techniques, and opportunities to try out your own skills.
An assertive person is confident and direct in dealing with others. Assertive communications promote fairness and equality in human interactions, based on a positive sense of respect for self and others. It is the direct communication of a person’s needs, wants, and opinions without punishing, threatening, or putting down another person.
Assertive behavior includes the ability to stand up for a person’s legitimate rights – without violating the rights of others or being overly fearful in the process. A skill that can be learned, assertive behavior is situationally specific; meaning different types of assertive behavior can be used in different situations.
Assertive behavior involves three categories of skills; self-affirmation, expressing positive feelings, and expressing negative feelings. Each will be explored during this course.
Negative thinking is the process of thinking negative rather than positive thoughts. Seemingly, positive thinking requires effort while negative thinking is uninvited and happens easily.
A person who has been brought up in a happy and positive atmosphere, where people value success and self-improvement will have a much easier time thinking positively. One who was brought up in a poor or difficult situation will probably continue to expect difficulties and failure.
Strong communication skills are essential for assertive interaction with others.
A strong self-concept depends both upon what you do -- and make -- and your idea of yourself. Goal setting is the process that allows you to analyze and determine what you do. Goal setting helps you feel strong -- and in control.
Worth is defined as “sufficiently good, important or interesting to justify a specified action. People with a sense of self worth exude confidence in themselves. They feel in charge of their own destiny, and are happy. To create a picture of your self-worth, take a self-concept inventory, by analyzing multiple attributes in your life such as Physical appearance, How you relate to others, Personality, How other people see you, Performance at work or school, Performance of the daily tasks of life, Mental functioning.
A person who has a strong sense of personal worth makes a confident, positive appearance.
Feeling and looking the part would not be complete without voice. Given that we know that 38% of communication effectiveness is governed by voice quality, improving your overall voice message delivery is worthwhile.
Presentations made by assertive, self-confident people can achieve a desired outcome.
