Making a better impression.
Did you know that worrying about what others think of you starts during childhood? It's a shame, don't you think? Because this makes you lose touch with yourself. In this learning journey, you'll learn not only about assertive behavior, but also about who you really are. There are many benefits to asserting yourself. You'll stop ending up in impossible situations, gain confidence, and let others know exactly who you are and where you stand. Of course, becoming more assertive does not happen overnight. The self-confidence training you receive in this short assertiveness course will point you in the right direction. What are you waiting for?
We want to help you with this challenge. It's possible that not all the examples or exercises apply to your situation. The intention is certainly not to embarrass others, but to communicate your boundaries respectfully. So take from it what you can, and what you feel comfortable with. But don't forget, if you want to learn to set your boundaries, you'll need the courage to step outside your comfort zone.
