Leadership Roundtables

Friday, February 10, 2017  11:30 – 1 pm


Topic:  Advocacy Skills for Better Collaboration and Empowerment

How comfortable are you advocating for yourself, your values or your opinions?  As a leader, being able to assert yourself is an essential skill, but many people are uncomfortable doing so, especially when in a lesser position of power.

There is a clear distinction between assertive and aggressive communication, but many people do not know how to be assertive or to advocate for their ideas in a way that doesn’t become aggressive.

In this session, I will share with you

  • The difference between assertive and aggressive advocacy
  • Why people struggle to advocate for themselves
  • How to be more assertive and advocate effectively
  • How to coach your team members to be more assertive
  • How to deal with aggression from others
