'The Queen turned crimson with fury, and, after glaring at her for a moment like a wild beast, screamed Off with her head! Off-!' 'Nonsense!' said Alice, very loudly and decidedly, and the Queen was silent.'
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
We don't always get the balance right with assertive communication. Luckily we are not facing a major stressor like the Queen of Hearts asking for our head on a good day! If you would like to improve the balance between responding to others needs while ensuring you meet your own and learning effective techniques to be more constructive in personal and working life then contact me about a workshop.
I am running 'Assertiveness: getting the balance right' 2 hour workshops in Bristol and Bath in complementary health venues.
The next one is Yanley Court, Long Ashton on 12 March 2-4pm and I also run workshops at The Family Practice, Glos Road and The Practice Rooms Bath on a sat morning so contact me if interested. Cost £35 including refreshments and a wonderful feel good factor in a beautiful setting! firstname.lastname@example.org
