Social Skills & Assertiveness Training
This addresses a very prevalent fear of receiving a bad reputation from others. It assists individuals in navigating their interpersonal and professional connections in order to achieve better connection and other desired results.
Do you find it difficult to refuse your boss’ excessive requests for your work-life balance? Do you ever feel as though your family and friends have more influence on your personal life than you do? Would you wish to be able to set boundaries in both your professional and social settings without worrying about how they might affect how you get along with other people?
Knowing the difference between acting passively, aggressively, and assertively is crucial.
One of the most significant and practical social skills you will ever master is this one.
Passivity focuses on people pleasing
By employing this approach, you ensure that you advance others’ interests at the price of your own needs, feelings, and wants.
Aggressiveness is focused on winning
This approach guarantees that you advance your own interests at the expense of other people’s needs, feelings, and desires.
The focus of assertiveness is balance.
Finding a balance allows you to express your own needs and wants while also taking into account the requirements, feelings, and desires of others.
