'Assertive' and 'Aggressive', two words that are constantly confused. Interplay Coaching's Assertive vs. Aggressive workshop will prove to participants that it is much easier for one to choose aggressiveness over assertiveness. But 'easy' isn't always the best answer and assertiveness wins out at the end of the day.

Participants discover, in relevant and meaningful ways, why assertive behavior is more likely to get you what you want and why aggressive behavior often gets you in to trouble.
