Being assertive gives you the opportunity to be heard and appreciated by others.
Have you ever experience trying to speak or get a point across but nobody cared? Did you end up not saying anything? Maybe you lack assertiveness? Maybe you need to join PDtraining’s Assertiveness and Self-confidence Training Course in Hong Kong? Maybe it’s time for a change?
There are a lot of maybes but one thing’s for sure, if you’re not being heard, you won’t get anywhere. You need to be more assertive. Life can be very sad and unfulfilling when people don’t seem to notice that you’re worth something. It can really pull you down and fill you with negative energy that can affect everything that you do in work and even in your personal life.
In this course, you will be able to learn a number of things that can literally change your life for the better. Let’s break down some of the things you’ll learn.
What’s pulling you down? It could be the way you think. You’ll learn about the different types of negative thinking, how they affect you and how you can apply the solutions to your own personal challenges.
Proper Communication Skills
Proper communication skill does not only mean being a good speaker. It also means you should be an excellent listener. There are also proper ways to ask questions and to send out body language. These are just subtle adjustments but the difference can be as clear as night and day.
Looking, Feeling and Sounding the Part
There is an old saying that goes something like, “In order to be successful, you have to look and feel successful.” Well, this is really true. You see, when we are successful, there are changes that happen within us. We start to be confident. With less stress, our looks begin to have a glowing change. Yes, when people see you like this, they will want to listen to you because to them, you are an achiever.
Now imagine for a moment, if you didn’t have a big smile. You don’t look neat and it seems like you’re just dragging your feet wherever you go. Would that make people believe in what you say? It’s like someone as poor as a rat trying to sell you a get rich quick technique. You would never believe it.
In order for people to respect you, you need to learn to be respectable. Also remember that this goes both ways. People will only respect you if you also know how to respect others.
Dealing with Difficult Behaviour
At some point, you will encounter people with difficult behavior. They will test you to your limits until you break down. Never give in to giving up. Never stoop to their level. You are better than the situation that is presented to you.
There are tactics being taught in PDtraining Hong Kong that will get you to fight off these problems and eventually come to a consensus. Look to difficult people as a challenge and never fight fire with fire.
The next time you want to be heard, make sure you’re prepared. Because success does not come by chance, it is created.
