Assertiveness isn’t an option for success-minded managers – it’s a must-have skill.

Workshop Description/Agenda

That’s because as a manager, it’s your job to get the best possible results through others day in and day out. To get great results, you’ve got to be authoritative without steamrolling people … make your points powerfully without coming across as pushy … gain cooperation and commitment without being heavy-handed … resolve conflicts without losing your cool.

In other words, to be a great manager today,
you’ve got to be skilled in assertiveness.
