This programme focuses on the art of having gravitas without pretending to be someone you’re not.

Our reactions to challenging communication scenarios, such as negotiations or disagreements often fall into two categories: being too passive, or too aggressive. Assertive communications means having a calm, confident presence where you’re neither pushed around by others, nor feel the need to defend yourself by pushing others around.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could clearly express what you want without being put off balance? This course investigates how.

This course is offered as an in-house programme only, at your convenience. It’s part of our public speaking training offering that’s available in the UK, Europe, North America and the Middle East.

What do we cover?

  • What is ‘gravitas’ and how do you ‘get it’?
  • Theory behind the physicality of assertiveness
  • How to avoid being passive or aggressive, but find a centred place from which to assert yourself
  • Practice saying ‘no’ and meaning it
  • Tools to find your assertive core
  • Handling a difficult communication scenario with assertive power

Your key takeaways

  • By finding assertiveness from within body language and posture, we can all feel more assertive, irrespective of the pressure of a situation.
  • Reducing the fear around confrontation, negotiations and other challenging scenarios
  • Development of methods for each participant that quickly get them into a calm, centred and assertive state.
