Assertiveness Skills for Woman


I have an Accounts Manager who is very keen to progress within the company but her line manager feels that she needs to build her assertiveness skills toolbox as she regularly presents to and has meetings with the senior management team. Line manager feels that, at this stage, this person would benefit from a course specifically aimed at women and which focuses on dealing with difficult and aggressive behaviour.

    Try Skillpath –

    I think this is the US site, but they do a lot of seminars and I know one is called ‘assesrtive communication skills for women’. Their training material tends to be very good, though the sessions are usually presentation style to 100 people. But I’ve had surprisingly good feedbck from other participants on a similar course.

    Dear Pamela

    I do Assertiveness training and have a focused (women specific) course with optional follow up counselling sessions over the phone. It’s not currently scheduled as an open session however if there’s sufficient interest I can prganise something (or go in house if there are more delegates to make it financially viable to the client company) Best wishes Candy Bowman (

    Hello Pamela

    I run a programme aimed at women wanting to improve their assertiveness, goal setting and confidence. These are usually inhouse programmes for up to 30 women. Do contact me if you’d like more information.

  5. Springboard
    Depending on how long you can commit, you might consider the award-winning women’s development programme – Springboard. For details look on or our own site at

    Women assess themselves, set goals and then develop the practical skills and self confidence needed to achieve those goals.

    Thousands of women in all walks of life and in different patterns of employment have opened up all sorts of opportunities for themselves, following the programme.

    You can realistically expect any of these outcomes:

    have more self confidence and motivation

    set and achieve clear goals

    develop a positive attitude

    communicate more assertively and effectively

    present a positive image

    improve your work/life balance.

    Employers are able to develop the potential in this often overlooked sector of staff.

    Hundreds of employers have enjoyed the immediate and long term benefits of staff who are more highly motivated and better communicators following the programme. Commercial companies, public sector organisations, universities, government departments and voluntary groups in many different countries have all benefited.

    Employers can realistically expect any of these outcomes:

    more highly motivated and focussed staff

    improved communications

    improved customer relations

    staff who bring solutions, not problems

    retention of staff

    promotions from within.

    Best wishes,
