Assertiveness and the Power of NO — with Almarie Meyer

Effective communication is a key component of leadership and building relationships. Many of us have acquired bad communication habits over the years and may not even be aware that there are better ways to communicate. The purpose of communicating is gaining mutual understanding and the most effective way of communicating is by being assertive. Assertive people have been found to be less stressed, better at finding common ground and are excellent problem-solvers.

In this webinar we will explore the different communication styles, look at avoiding common pitfalls and provide practical tips for improving communication. We will also be covering the importance of active listening in improving communication, and the counter-intuitive way that saying no to requests will improve relationships.
