Self Confidence and Assertiveness Training Course: 

This self confidence course: self confidence reap the benefits of self confidence, is going to empower you and elevate your self-confidence to a whole new height!

When it comes to asking people what it is that they would like more of, along with money, having self-confidence and being more assertive is probably at the top of the list.  After all, having self-confidence can give us a huge advantage and is responsible for propelling us in our careers, our love life, and how we view ourselves as a whole.  This in turn, has a knock on effect on how we feel about ourselves and ultimately our self-esteem. 

Having self-confidence will give you the courage to take chances and risks that you might not ordinarily take advantage of.  Having belief in yourself will ensure you never let an opportunity pass you by and you'll discover what it means to realise your full potential.

This self confidence  and assertiveness training course will afford you a deeper sense of self-confidence and will help you know your strengths and weaknesses and use these to your benefit.

You'll be able to utilise your newfound self-confidence to challenge yourself and overcome hurdles you would never have dared to previously.

As with all of my courses, this self-confidence and assertiveness training course comes with full support from me 7 days a week.

Whatever it is you'd like to achieve I can get you where you want to be.  I'll show you how you develop long term strategies to build on your self-confidence as well as some "emergency" strategies that you can put into place when the moment calls for it!

This comprehensive confidence and assertiveness training course has over 80 lectures and are all downloadable.  You'll also find all the resources you'll need to take the course included.

Self-confidence is something everyone seems to want, but not many people stop to think what self-confidence actually is. Before we can even talk about boosting self-confidence we need to discuss the nature of self-confidence.

We look at the two important principles here surrounding our beliefs. These include the sum of our beliefs and also what we think is the truth even if we have no evidence for it.

What Are Beliefs?

This lecture lends itself to confirmation bias. Confirmation bias is when we look for evidence to support something that we already believe to be true.

This is a great lesson to get to grips with in the quest for becoming more self-confident!

Belief and Bias – A Match Made in Hades

In this lecture we look at the example of Michael, and his boss, Trudy. Michael believes he is a terrible writer and is left feeling somewhat dented after Trudy asks him to write a presentation!

Belief And Bias – The Trudy and Michael Scenario

In this concluding lecture of 'Belief and Bias' we look at why people find it difficult to remove or change a fundamental belief they may hold. For some people they choose not to change (even if it's for the better), because it can shake up their sense of identity.

Now, we all want to be as confident as we can, but there are times when we need to be realistic in respect of our talents. The Dunning-Kruger Effect is a term given to people who have no awareness. It is an incredibly interesting topic and one I'm sure you will enjoy learning about!

Just Too Ignorant: The Dunning-Kruger Effect

The Imposter Syndrome is a very real concern for a lot of people who are living with low self-confidence. It basically refers to anyone who has a belief that their successes and achievements are down to luck rather than merit. This lecture explores the Imposter Syndrome "curse" with a practical exercise that will help you dispute the curse and ensure that you feel proud of what you've achieved and not feel like a "fake".

The Imposter Syndrome Curse

This is a great exercise on self-awareness as well as self-confidence. This lecture is concerned with the principle of "Show, don't tell". It is all about creating a character without actually giving explicit details away, and here we turn this principle on ourselves!
