Assertiveness & Confidence Building Skills

Presented by Laura Fitzsimons

Course description


Welcome to this Assertiveness Skills and Building Confidence Course. I’m Laura Fitzsimons and I’m a training and presenting coach of SkillWorks. Strong assertiveness skills are essential both in the workplace and outside of the workplace. Being able and capable of asserting ourselves makes us much more successful and happier in life.

You can go through the course at your own pace however, it generally takes 7 1/2 to 8 hours to work through the materials and to practise the exercises and techniques.

The Course

Over the modules and throughout this programme …

• I will teach you how to counteract aggressive behaviour.
• I will also show you how to say no, and really mean it, without feeling guilty.
• I will show you how to examine your self-confidence and you will learn how to become more self-confident to deal with any situation that presents itself to you.

During the programme I’m going to look at self-limiting beliefs and how they hold you back. I’m going to examine how to challenge those and overcome them, and flip them over to empowering beliefs.

The Format

I will do this through instructional videos, learner guides which you can reference as I’m working through the modules, as well as video transcripts so you can not only see what I’m saying, but hear what I’m saying. These will all help you learn to become more assertive and help build your confidence.

Each module will have the following:

  • The Module Video
  • A Transcript of Module Video
  • A Case Study Video
  • A Transcript of the Case Study Video
  • A Workbook
