Speaking Confidently & Assertively

Would you like to speak up more often in situations? Do you usually remain quiet in order to keep the peace? Do you ever feel that people walk all over you or take advantage of you? Do you wish you could say what you feel?

Through our interactions with others, our sense and belief of self is also impacted and reinforced everyday. Whether verbally or nonverbally, we say a lot to other people every day. And we can always get better at it.

Most of our daily interactions significantly impact our perceived sense of self and our perceived connection to others. How we experience our world is impacted by our sense of feeling close to people through a variety of thoughts, feelings, actions and activities. So, speaking our unique thoughts and sharing our heart, ideas and feelings is essential for enjoying a peaceful life.

This Speaking Confidently & Assertively class will help participants:
