This Workshop aims to teach nurses, midwives and those in management in the healthcare profession, the mindset to make assertive decisions with conviction to influence others in a positve way. Assertiveness is a life skill which benefits every area of a person's life. Durning the workshop they will be able to distinguish between aggressive, assertive and passive behaviour. An assertiveness self-assessment will be conducted and a personal S.W.O.T. analysis - which will give clear indications as to areas requiring self-development.
It has become evident from training over the past few years that senior personnel in the health care sector are quite lacking in self-confidence, despite their clinical competencies and confidence. They feel they don’t know how to say 'No', how to have those difficult conversations or how to influence and lead their staff. This training will greatly benefit the participants in handling
difficult situations within the workplace as managing conflict at all levels is an everyday occurrence.
