Assertiveness is communicating and expressing your thoughts, feelings, and opinions in a way that makes your views and needs clearly understood by others, without putting down their thoughts, feelings, or opinions.
Being assertive is first of all a state of mind: feeling like YOU deserve to be here and express yourself as much as anyone else.
Often people understand it in their head, but don’t really believe it in their heart, and so, HOW they express themselves doesn’t reflect WHAT they’re saying, because up to 80% of human communication is non-verbal.
With 18 years of experience as a Gestalt therapist, I’ve learned to pay attention to HOW people speak because it expresses their true self more than WHAT they say.
Becoming also a coach helped me see the practical applications of our non-verbal communication.
Miry’s workshop was extremely eye opening and impactful. I became aware of language and habits that were not serving me and provided with more empowering and effective alternatives and tools.
An open and collaborative environment was created where people could share their own experiences, and each had personal individual attention and support. I have already began applying what I have learnt and can’t wait for more. Highly recommendable!
I see myself as a social and quite assertive woman and entrepreneur but sometimes I find it difficult to not be apologetic when I express my point of view in certain – often men-dominated – environments.
I was a bit sceptic when I enrolled: will it be right for me or will it be directed to shy and self-doubting people?
I realised I was in the right place from moment one of the assertive webinar, when Miry offered immediately relatable examples, scientifically proven techniques and tools to make me feel at ease in those challenging environments.
I attended Miry’s assertive workshop not knowing exactly what I would get out of it, but I left empowered and ready to work on myself. Miry has a real talent for analysing how you speak and present yourself.
If you want to level up how you present yourself and gain plenty of self-confidence along the way then I can warmly recommend her.
Miry’s assertive communication webinar opened my mind to more effective communication way, for myself personally and professionally. It was great session, very dynamic, and it went fast!
Her guidance and experience were key for all participants to connect and be attentive the whole time
