Confidence for women 1: How to be assertive and win respect

Confidence for women: How to be assertive and win respect

Many of us as women need more confidence. When we lack confidence we may fail to speak out at meetings, our work can go unrecognised, or we can be talked into things we don't wish to do.

Learn how to build your confidence, be more assertive and gain respect at work, in this exciting new tele-class by Founding Director of Confident Woman Australia, Rachel Green. 

This is not about making you or your female staff pushy, bossy or difficult. That's being aggressive. Assertion skills are always based on respect.

This confidence for women live tele-class will cover, how to:

  • Sound more assertive and confident.
  • Look more confident.
  • Speak out with self-confidence and clarity at meetings.
  • Stand up for yourself without being aggressive or rude.
  • Say No! politely without feeling guilty or hurting people's feelings.
  • Be taken seriously and gain the respect you deserve from the public, colleagues and others.
  • Sound knowledgeable, intelligent and mature.
  • Express opinions to senior, or other people, without feeling intimidated or anxious.
  • Gain the credit for your ideas.

Available for private groups and organisations by request 

Plesae contact us to have this tele-class conducted privately for your group of women.

Presenter: Rachel Green:

  • Rachel Green is the Director of the Emotional Intelligence Institute, and the Founding Director of Confident Woman Australia, a professional speaker and author.
  • She is the author of 20 CDs, 8 books and 3 DVDs, including the unique 2 DVD program, "How to develop emotional resilience and manage your emotions".
  • In 2007/8 she instigated, funded and conducted a significant recording and research project into the factors reducing and improving self-confidence and self-esteem in Australian women. She recorded 14 amazing women as part of the project and has since released these recordings on three CD sets/MP3 recordings: "Confidence for women in social situations", "Confidence for women in public speaking", and "Confidence for women at work." 
  • She is an engaging, warm, lively presenter with a great sense of humour. She promises not to be boring.


This was the first webinar I've attended. It was easy and a really convenient way to receive training - all in the comfort of my dining room! Rachel delivered excellent content and had plenty of great practical examples. I thoroughly recommend this type of training.

It was great to be able to do this live tele-class, in my own space and with no travel and accommodation expenses, but still being able to interact with other participants. Rachel's presentation was short, sharp and to the point; and I was able to take away so much from it, even though we only had an hour. I would recommend Rachel's live tele-classes to anyone wanting to acquire new skills, brush-up on old ones or discover something about themselves.

Thank you Rachel! Your tele-class was a wonderful experience. Living in the country makes it difficult to gain access to valuable information and I find the webinar technology so easy.

After the webinar/tele-class I can now see that conversations are about relationships and not time filling! It was excellent. I got lots of topic ideas. Thanks very much.
