The School of Assertiveness
Learn to become assertive. For your own mental wellbeing.
September 13th- October 18th, 2022
The School of Assertiveness is the first online school that teaches its attendees how to become assertive with a main goal: better mental health.
Statistically, people who are assertive are more resilient and keep a positive attitude through life challenges, and have better relationships because of their non-violent communication skills. They learn to place healthy boundaries with less guilt towards others, they can make clear requests and navigate disagreements with less anxiety.
Participants will learn to become assertive through evidence-based case studies, join Q&A sessions, and practice cases in small groups with the founder of FindYourWay Coaching, Alessandra, who will tell her own successful stories of assertiveness and how that made her start her company and her journey in the world of mental distress prevention.
The approach of the program is transformational change through group coaching. No more than 10 participants will be present, and once an attendee is registered, she/he will have access to the Assertiveness Academy, which is a platform that will give the opportunity for special monthly calls, follow-ups and discounts on events organized by FindYourWay Coaching.
The School has been designed by Alessandra after more than 1,500 hours of coaching and facilitating in groups and one to one in the span of 6 years, and based on case studies from the professional world as well as from the academic world and with special attention to the recent research on the concept of assertiveness.
We should all have a voice. And a voice that is heard. For many complex but human reasons sometimes we deny ourselves this opportunity. We might not want to say NO or create a conflict; we might want to please a person who matters to us. We might simply want to keep our job.
When we want to belong so strongly to a community, a family, a relationship or a job, we can forget our own needs and ideas on the way...
The emotional distress coming from the lack of boundaries, together with the frustration coming from not being able to articulate our wants and needs can take a toll on our mental well-being and our sense of identity.
With the idea of becoming assertive and gain greater mental health, THE SCHOOL OF ASSERTIVENESS is born!
The School of Assertiveness consists of 7 hours of group coaching spread within 6 weeks*. We meet once a week for 75 minutes and you are provided with super useful exercises to practice on your own!
Each session is in English, and held online LIVE with Alessandra, your assertiveness coach. Easy to schedule and always on the same day and time of the week. We will use Zoom for our sessions.
5 Sessions are common to all participants, whereas the 6th session is a specific communication session (either individual or in smaller groups) where you can practice your new skills.
You will meet other international people living through the same challenges and can feel connected and understood.

Group coaching creates a dimension where we share the same challenges, and therefore we feel understood. Working with exercises and roleplays is important, and each one of the participants is part of a transformative journey towards a new assertive mindset.
In the school we do prevention as well.
Here we break also the myth that sacrificing for the community, as women sometimes do, is a good thing. We discover the concept of self-actualization versus self-sacrifice, emotional ventilation versus emotional restraint, self-determination versus self-defined by others, and mutual support versus egocentric preservation.
