About This Class

Please sign up at for emotional intelligence news and resources.

Assertion is not about being aggressive nor is it about getting your own way.  It is about standing up for your rights and expressing your needs, your thoughts and your feelings in appropriate ways so that they are listened to with consideration. 

This class looks at different types of behaviour

  • Aggressive behaviour
  • Passive behaviour
  • Assertive behaviour

There are some hints, tips and methods that you can use to build your assertion to improve your interactions and relationships with others.

Changing your behaviour is NOT easy, especially when you are trying to be more assertive.  People will not necessarily react in positive, supportive ways and you will will have to deal with your emotional responses to this.
