Module 4: Assertive Communication
Requests versus demands: the courage to ask for things we need
- 1 hr1 hour
- Location 1
And we start full on with our assertive communication modules! If in the previous module we had started learning how to say NO, how we start making requests and ask for things we need. Careful! We are not demanding things, we are requesting. The essence of assertiveness is really making this distinction so clear that our relationships will tremendously benefit from it, just as our mental wellbeing. We learn to respond assertively when our requests are not met, and also how our fear of asking things is sometimes only based on assumptions.
