Assertiveness Training Workshop

Greater Essex ETFO was proud to be the host local for a provincial, regional workshop on the topic of assertiveness. ETFO members from Greater Essex and surrounding locals met at Hilton Windsor to receive some weekend professional development.

Under the guidance of Jessica Schwey and Jolae Fuller of The Centre for Health and Anger Resolution, participants tweaked their ability to communicate effectively. An assertive style involves stating your thoughts,feelings, needs, or wants in a direct, honest, and appropriate manner. To be assertive, you must also take responsibility for yourself, be respectful to others, and be an effective listener and problem solver.
