Interpersonal Communication: Communicating Assertively (COMM214P)

Blended Learning course is an emerging trend in education, it is a combination of e-Learning and face-to-face teaching approaches which allow middle-level executives access to e-Learning course around the clock and study at their own pace, while they can also have a conventional learning experience through face-to-face interactions. IAEE understands middle-level executives’ needs, and so we have launched a new series of Blended Learning courses to refresh and update their skillsets to stay ahead of the competitive market in a highly effective way.


Communication Series: Interpersonal Communication: Communicating Assertively (COMM214P)

Effective communication in the workplace can be a balancing act.  If we are too passive, we may have trouble getting others to do what we want.  If we are too aggressive, we may turn people off. Getting what we want in the workplace requires a balance of assertiveness without aggressiveness.  The objective of the course are to guide participants to move into a more straightforward and more effective communication style. The participants will learn about the benefits of assertive behaviour and how to distinguish it from passive, aggressive, or passive- aggressive behaviour. They will also learn about the requirements for assertive communication, such as being honest and straightforward, being respectful of others’ needs and feelings, and using assertive body language and tone. Moreover, they will learn about how to increase the power of their assertive communication when the first attempts do not get the results they intended.  Materials designed to support blended learning activities aligned with this course are available from the e-Learning course of the same title, which will be provided as part of the learning materials.
