I didn’t think this course would help as I thought I was already assertive, but I was wrong.
The course opened my eyes to what it really meant to be assertive and the tools we looked at were really easy to follow and easy to implement. I’ve already used some of these with instant results.
Lynne the trainer was amazing. The course was really engaging and the fact that there was no PowerPoint was surprising but made the course really engaging.
Thanks Lynne and thanks Revolution.

Didn’t think I needed this course. I was asked to go by my boss but I actually learned a few things and it made me think about how I came across to other people at work. Thank you for your help

I had a really good experience on this course as it helped me with a real situation that I was facing with someone at work.
The small group meant that we could talk about our own scenarios and I felt really comfortable talking to the trainer about my own. I tried some of the things we discussed and they do seem to be helping.
Thank you to Lynne for taking the time to help.

Our Approach
No PowerPoint

Yes, you read that right! We’ve removed PowerPoint from this and many of our other courses.

Instead we opt for more creative ways to deliver course content and create more discussions in our courses.

We don’t spend time on theory. We’ll introduce it but focus more attention on practical tools and ideas that you can actually take away and use.

We’ll provide the theory in your course materials to take away with you.

Clear Pricing

Our pricing is clear. You’ll see the exact price of our open training courses on our site.

We’ll quote an all-inclusive price for in-house and bespoke work. You won’t pay a penny more than we quote you for your course.
