This program helps women handle one of the toughest aspects of leadership.
Why do women often have more difficulty than men in being assertive? Women are conditioned differently, and they take that conditioning into the work force. Therefore, it’s often more difficult to compete, disagree and interrupt. Women tend to add a passive or apologetic tone to their statements or questions during meetings and group discussions in order to appear all-inclusive; this behavior creates negative perceptions and impacts a woman’s credibility.
Women will learn to:
- Assess personal influences on assertiveness and maximize strengths
- Resolve conflict through smarter awareness, language and non-verbal skills
- Negotiate and ask for what you want, regardless of how many “no’s” you hear
- Communicate bad news without apologies and with confidence
- Handling criticism by reframing the comments and taking out the emotion
