Assertiveness Coaching

The topics of assertiveness and public speaking are the two most cited areas where people would like to improve their working lives. And we live in times when we are chronically short of time!  At work, we bend under the multitude of tasks, we rush from one call to another, and we live in constant tension. We come home in a hurry, tired, and nervous, and instead of finding understanding, we come into conflict with our loved ones. And this lack of understanding and peace in private life deprives us of energy for the next workday.
And so the circle is closed. In addition, in the case of many companies, the so-called company's mission can be summed up today in three words: more, more, more ... How to get out of this vicious circle?

Assertiveness Coaching - what is it about?

Assertiveness is honesty towards oneself and towards others. And it has a great deal to do with integrity, with being aware of your needs and your value system. Communication is the axis of everything. You say what you think and do what you say. But it is extremely important: HOW, WHEN, and WITH WHOM.

Each of us has specific preferences for perceiving the world, learning, and making decisions. Assertiveness Coaching can be very helpful in becoming aware of your own preferences, and then the preferences of those important to you. Thanks to this, you will understand the sources of differences and conflicts better, as well as learn to flexibly choose communication styles, and in particular, you will start to say "NO" gracefully. 

I help you stop in this busy world, and Assertiveness Coaching will teach you to say "NO" - without fear and guilt. This will make you stop acting out of fear, you won't have a hard time NOT doing something, and you will NOT build your agenda to the ceiling - especially in professional life.

As a result of our sessions, you will learn to:

  • recognize and notice your needs

  • set your boundaries

  • recognize the preferences and styles of other people

  • recognize healthy assertive behavior and unhealthy passive or passive-aggressive behavior

  • communicate  with others in a mature and flexible way

  • express your own opinion openly

  • resolve conflicts with much less energy expenditure

  • be in conflict without fear or guilt

Assertiveness Coaching - rules of conducting the session

The standard contract flow is as follows:

  • the duration of one session is 1 clock hour

  • the cost of one hour is EUR 100+VAT

  • conversations take place using popular video call tools (e.g. Zoom). We will choose the tool you use most often

  • the important point is that we meet regularly once a week for the first few sessions

  • we work 4 days a week, from Monday to Thursday. We will find the date that best suits both sides

  • our conversations will be complemented by various materials and methods, such as the NVC method (Non-Violent Communication)
     

This is the starting point. The duration of the session can, however, be flexibly adapted to your individual needs. After all, its main topic will be Coaching and Practicing Assertiveness.
