Checklist: do you need an assertiveness course?

Standing up for yourself without unnecessarily hurting others is the core of assertive behaviour. Daring to give your opinion, but also daring to listen to the other persons’ opinion.

Do you often feel that you:

  • aren’t getting what you want?
  • should have said "no" but are left holding the baby instead?
  • daren’t speak out frankly?
  • are not heard?
  • have difficulty in drawing a clear line?
  • would like to improve your communication with others?
  • swallow irritations and avoid confrontations?

Furthermore, do you have difficulty dealing with criticism, expressing your feelings and is the thought of public speaking enough to make your blood pressure rise?

If that is the case, an assertiveness course might prove to be very helpful to you. In addition, it can be of use when you wish to gain more self-insight. Being assertive is something you can learn.

Doing an assertiveness course results in more insight into your own and others’ behaviour. You will also be more capable of drawing a clear line. You will be able to communicate more effectively and deal with others in a more powerful and personal manner.

Course duration

Assertiveness isn’t a trick you can teach yourself. It requires a vast change in your attitude and behaviour, and that takes time and effort. A training programme or course of one day might provide you with the necessary tools and insights, but if you want to achieve a real change in attitude, it will take more time.

So if you want to make a structural change, you will benefit from a longer course.

Course type and group size

Consider which training approach best suits you and assures you get the best results. Do other people inspire you or would you rather receive a lot of personal attention? Find out how large the groups are to make sure your course is in accordance with your wishes.

Behavioural change is, generally speaking, easier to acquire in a group setting, where the input of the other participants can be very valuable and instructive.

Also, work out for yourself whether you need an assertiveness course or a course in communication skills or social skills. Are you a very shy person and could you use some help in this department? In that case, a social skills training course might help you achieve your learning goals. Do you have personal issues and feel that your personal needs require more attention? Perhaps a coach or a course in personal effectiveness would serve you better. If you feel that you could improve your communication with others, a training course in communication skills could be just the right course for you.

Does the provider suit you?

The irony is that some assertiveness is required in order to find the suitable assertiveness course. It is nevertheless of great importance to find the provider that suits you. So do your research and try out some providers in your neighbourhood. You can get an impression by checking the website, requesting the brochure and reading about others’ experiences. Moreover, just pick up the phone and call them if you have any more questions.

Taking the first steps towards a more assertive you starts with your search for the right course. We wish you the best of luck!
