Behavioural Change (soft skills)

Speaking Up for Yourself

Nerves are rubbish. If you find yourself feeling too nervous to ask your boss for a pay rise or time off or find it hard to bring something up with a colleague, you’re not alone. Having difficulty saying no to something or finding yourself in an uncomfortable position after your silence has been taken as agreement is common, too. As scary as it might seem, you’ve got to stand up if you want your true intentions to be known. Speaking up for yourself can make a real difference to your personal, social, and work life. This course will help you find ways to speak your truth, deal with others honestly, and learn to speak up for yourself.

Learning outcomes:
  • Identify the risks and benefits of speaking up
  • Explore the skills required to speak up effectively
  • Develop an approach to speaking up respectfully
