Webinar - Try It: Assertive Communication
Did you also find yourself adding words like simply, just, only, a bit in emails asking your colleague or client for the paperwork they should have sent ages ago? We've all been in a situation when we know we are right but still feel the urge to apologize for something or soften our words for a reason.
Karla Benske will give you tips how to act politely yet clearly and manage to say exactly what you want without unnecessary excuses.
She will share her own experience what was it like to come to UK from very straightforward culture in Germany and what she had to learn in order to adapt to a different culture.
You can test and apply her advice during the course of the event at short role-playing scenarios we prepare for you. Or even better, you can come up with your own situation and test it in the form of a ‘real play’.
