Nancy Stampahar, Silver Lining SolutionsCan you say "no?" Can you set boundaries and ask for what you need? Do you speak up in meetings? Do you let people yell at you? When you are served a cold meal in a restaurant, do you return it or eat the cold food you are paying for? Are your clients treating you like an employee or a collaborative business partner?

If you want to make money and gain respect, you can not be a walk-all-over doormat or a pushy jerk. You must become an assertiveness communicator, which is powerful and free of worry and judgment.

To succeed, you must become empowered to assert yourself with confidence and communication that is appropriate, effective and mostly, respectful. Join us for the "Assert Yourself Today!" teleseminar and learn how to:

  • Realize the differences between passive, assertive and aggressive communication styles.
  • Learn how to say "no" without feeling guilty.
  • Deliver constructive feedback with the Fact, Impact, Future performance improvement technique.
  • Take control of your life.

When you stand up for yourself and express your honest thoughts, feelings and needs in direct, appropriate ways, you can have win-win results and a whole lotta respect for yourself and from others. Start asserting yourself today by registering for the call at the Virtual Assistant Chamber of Commerce.
