Interpersonal skills are essential skills used to build trust, to develop people and confidence, to negotiate, to problem solve, to manage and lead.  One of these skills is Assertive Communication.  It’s the ability to express your needs, opinions, thoughts in a confident manner as opposed to an aggressive or passive manner.  Assertive communication builds confidence as the course creates self awareness and helps the learner decide which communication technique to use and when.
