"It was extremely helpful to me. I learned that being assertive doesn't mean being aggressive. Also, not to be intimidated by another's aggressiveness, believing that I did something wrong and deserve the disrespectful treatment. Also, not to be dismayed when another's personal attacks try to shift the responsibility for their unreasonable behavior off them and to me (or to let them). I have learned that in asserting myself dealing in business matters a 'short and sweet' interaction, explaining problem and desired solution is all that is required, not lengthy complaints and arguments. I am glad I signed-up for this class, and it has made clear that I am not responsible for another's problems or decisions. I've also seen that one or two attempts at asserting myself in certain situations will not succeed at once. But I always have options to remove myself from certain toxic personalities. Patience is needed to discover that option." -- Jane F.

Thank you for offering this course and for the instructor's kindness and clear communications. I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken this and am confident it will provide positive growth and support for me as I move forward into retirement and a new chapter in my life." -- Diane S.
