Assertiveness for Everyday Life 07/12/13

I really enjoyed your class last Saturday. At the end, I felt I was walking on air because I had a positive attitude on how to deal with these kind of people. Thank you for showing me hot to stand up for myself. I even went out of my way to avoid these people, but now I'm going to 'show' my face, and let them see who I am. I haven't been put on this planet to be 'used and abused.' I am that I am.

Thank you Jacquie

If you are looking for an assertiveness course, I recommend this one, if you are practical and value your time, money and anergy.

This course is practical - if you work with people who are aggressive, make unnecessary comments, or play games of one-upmanship, then handout three of this course is a light bulb moment.

Save money - The price of this course compared to its competitors is justification enough to choose this course over the others. The main providersI contacted could not explain what made their course so special in order to justify their $1,000 fee.

Stress Management Course - I recommend doing the stress management course after the assertiveness courses, especially if your stress is attributed to assertiveness challenges. The two courses complement each other.

Jacquie Wise - I could sing praises about the course lead, but meeting her is better than taking my word for it.
