These virtual training materials have been adapted from the corresponding classroom course materials that you will also find on our website. However, we have changed the structure and content so that it better suits delivery in a virtual environment such as a video conference call, which helps with training of remote workers. This means no major alteration to the content, but the structure and method of delivery will have altered.
Any person who has a need to become more assertive and to communicate better will find this course to be helpful.
The materials will help you to provide a virtual training programme that will help your learners to develop a more assertive approach to the way in which they communicate.
