  1. survival exercise
    there are a number of paper survival exercises; lost at sea, NASA, Desert survival for example.
    They are most often used in teambuilding programmes but I used the lost at sea one recently in an assertiveness workshop to generate real behaviours of assertiveness, passiveness, agressiveness….it worked really well.

    Use the link below to get a copy of the NASA exercise if you want to try it

    Good luck


  2. Assertiveness training
    Hi, Not sure if it would be of any use but there are free e.learning resources available on BBCSKILLSWISE. their free course on Confidence has some great tips and hints and self analysis questionnaires.
    Might be worth a look.

    Kind Regards

  3. Online Assertivess Resource
    Games and exercices are included in this online resource. The tutorial ‘Assertiveness at Work’ at could be an in-class tool for your training session.

    Hello Deepti

    How about giving them a basic scenario or them picking a typical situation they might have at work, and then them demonstrating what aggressive, passive and assertive behaviours would look like in dealing with that situation? You could introduce each style, get them to discuss what that would look like and then act it out – ending with the assertive style.
