Assertiveness Skills

Assertiveness is an important attribute in all walks of life, definitely in work life. Success at work, particularly in managerial role, has been found to be closely associated with one's ability to assert in situations of relationships with others-subordinates, superiors, colleagues and customers. Women managers, in particular, have difficulty in managing their relationships with others assertively and often they end up being at the losing end even when they don't need to.
The progression of women at workplace is often linked with what degree of assertiveness and what form of visibility they show in organizational setup. The recent trends show women who are assertive and confident but who can turn these traits on and off, depending on the social circumstances, get more promotions than either men or other women. Nepal Administrative Staff College (NASC) has firm belief that developing assertiveness starts with a good understanding of who we are and a belief in the value we bring in the organization. NASC has been offering this course with a hope it can contribute to the assertiveness of women managers.
