About the event

Did you know that Assertiveness is non-offensive and non-aggressive?

Did you know that most people interpret Assertiveness to mean any one of the following: aggressive, passive-aggressive, persuasive, intimidating, manipulating?

Why is that?

Because that's what we see more often in our lives. People "asserting" themselves through power or authority, by elevating their posture and physicality, by yelling, berating, name calling, by using physical force, and just about every other toxic behaviour you can imagine.

And where does this get them? No where. Just a fast ticket to "I don't want to be around you or be loyal to you or do anything for you."

However this isn't the only end result due to the unbalanced use of empathy and assertiveness.

Wishy washy. Avoidant. Passive. Withdrawn. Silent. 

Empathy isn't about being a rug that others walk over. Empathy isn't about absorbing what other people are feeling, crying when others cry, being angry when others are angry. Nor is it about allowing the circumstances someone is expeirencing to excuse behaviours, expectations, performance, or accountability.

This MASTERCLASS experience is going to leverage your abilities to balance the dynamic duo of empathy and assertiveness - making each skill much more influential and effective.

This is going to be a feast for information uptake and strategies/techniques whether you are a leader looking to advance your influence in the workplace, or a person looking to elevate your skills in life!
