About the course

Assertiveness is a communication skill in much the same way that 'negotiating', 'delegating', and other identifiable business skills are. It is a communication skill that enables people to be more confident and develop the appropriate interpersonal skills for dealing with people.

Assertiveness increases the chance of success in any human transaction.
