  • Discover the exact steps you need to speak with emotional intelligence (empathy and assertiveness) in a variety of situations, scenarios and relationships that matter to you the most.
  • Be taken more seriously, be more assertive WITHOUT being aggressive, gain cooperation, no longer say 'Yes' when you want to say 'No', speak with integrity, have more confidence to speak up, stand up for yourself to difficult people without antagonising them. disagree without being negative, find the confidence about speaking your mind.
  • We'll help you find the honest words you can use, and that will help you find the courage.  We'll show you what to say, and help you practice saying it over and over until you become really good at it.
