Does someone else define your life?
You're taking on a new project when you're actually full. You know that your fellow manager earns more for the same work, but you don't dare ask for a salary increase. Or you do stand up for yourself in a difference of opinion, but you feel so much tension that your message does not get across and you are stressed for days.
Always taking other people's opinions into account can be very frustrating. Many people even get physical complaints from it. Headaches, being tired all the time, or that tension in your shoulders that just won't go away.
A strength that starts from balance
The solution lies in individual assertiveness training. In a personal assertiveness training with me in Rotterdam you learn to take space for your own wishes and interests. Even if they go against someone else's interests.
Does being assertive mean that you always put your own interests first? No. Being assertive is a force that comes from balance. So you also learn to feel in which situations you like to contribute to someone else's interests. Or even better: learning to go for a win-win.
Grow in a way that suits you
This process can feel exciting. That is why it is good to follow an assertiveness training under the guidance of a very experienced assertiveness coach. With me you research in a safe setting where there is room for growth, and how you can master this in small steps in a way that suits you.
Frequently asked questions about assertiveness training
Why is coaching assertiveness necessary?
If you constantly conform to what your environment expects, you live the life that others define for you. How will you look back on that when you are 80? Taking space means being yourself. Developing your talents. Following your interests. To be heard and seen. Live your life on your terms. To learn that, you follow an assertiveness training at Coaching Rotterdam.
How does an assertiveness training at Coaching Rotterdam work?
The coaching is always individual. We look at causes, patterns, and underlying beliefs. What do you say to yourself that prevents you from standing up for your interests? I help you through warm engagement, sharp questions, and mirroring. We work with proven techniques and models, and break the vicious circle you've been in for so long. You will discover new beliefs and continuously learn new behaviours.
Can I combine assertiveness training with e-coaching?
Certainly. A lot of coachees do this. In the secure online environment Pluform you have the opportunity every day to share experiences, ask questions, or seek advice in the event of a difficult or stressful situation. Pluform gives you extra fast results, and you always have a helping hand at home or at work. Providing peace and security.
How many sessions are needed to become more assertive?
Most of the professionals and managers I coach have achieved their goals in a short and effective process of 4 to 5 meetings: Relaxed and confident in doing their job, feeling what they need in all kinds of situations, and being able to act accordingly. They experience finally having space to realize their own wishes and dreams.
