"Assertiveness Training Camp" available
Too often, assertive behaviors can feel very uncomfortable at first. We don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings or be seen as difficult or causing problems. On the flip side, some people get overly aggressive and angry and then say they were just being “assertive.” How can you tell the difference between setting—and keeping—a healthy boundary and real anger? And how can asserting yourself ever become a comfortable behavior?
At Assertiveness Training Camp, you’ll begin with why you—and many others like you—have trouble sticking up for yourself. Then, you’ll focus on the work of learning the tools and exercises that will give you courage when the time comes for you to take a stand—without being overly harsh or damaging your own reputation.
