The Empowered Workplace: Clearly Communicating Expectations

Struggling with how to effectively assert your needs, opinions, and boundaries?
Worried you'll sound rude? Or maybe not be firm or clear enough?
Don’t know how to say “this is not OK with me” or feel guilty when you do?

During this virtual session we will:

  • explore a continuum of communication styles
  • Discuss the benefits of assertive communication
  • Examine common barriers to communicating assertively
  • Share specific verbal and non-verbal strategies for communicating clearly, respectfully, and assertively

Our goal is to empower you to honestly communicate what you think, feel, and want in a way that honors dignity and contributes to psychological safety.

We will use breakout rooms for discussion and practice; access to microphone and camera recommended. Attendance via phone not recommended.
