Lunch & Learn

Assertiveness Skills for Work & Life with Melanie Coeshott from Blue Diamond

Join us for this event that will look at how assertiveness can help you perform at your very best at work, and how to support your teams in exercising their assertiveness.

Assertiveness is a social skill that relies heavily on effective communication, while simultaneously respecting the thoughts and wishes of others.

Assertive people can clearly and respectfully communicate their wants, needs, positions and boundaries in a way that is not confrontational or demanding. Whilst many of us aim to be assertive, sometimes we find ourselves being either too passive or too aggressive. So how do you get that balance right?

Melanie will go through the ways to become more assertive in this workshop, and help you learn what impacts your own assertiveness. She will also help you understand how best to manage this going forward, and how to apply it to your career, and life, for maximum success.

This event is free for clients of Anne Corder Recruitment. Places are limited, so secure yours now by emailing info@annecorder.co.uk or give us a call.

Building your influencing toolkit with Katy Walton from Real Progress

‘Influencer’ is a current buzzword in the work world. But it takes more than a Facebook post with lots of engagement to be a strong influencer in the workplace! If you want a good predictor of how far your career might go, your influencing skills could play a big part in this.

It’s widely acknowledged that the more advanced and effective your influencing skills are, the more likely you are to succeed at work, whatever your chosen career path.

This informal, relaxed session will give you some key influencing techniques that you can start using immediately. Katy will give you some ideas about how to bring them to life, and you’ll get the chance to practise and consider the techniques that will work for your next influencing opportunity.
