Assertiveness and Self Confidence Training Course Reviews:


 SICK PTY LTD

“I found the course very inspiring in a way now I am very motivated in looking at myself in a different way with more self confidence and searching different ways I can improve myself ...ie listening to motivational speakers, reading motivational books. Our trainer was excellent and had so much energy.” 

 -SICK PTY LTD


 Risenetwork

"I really enjoyed the Assertiveness and Self Confidence training yesterday, it was perfectly met my training needs and I (and all the other attendees) came up with an action plan to improve ourselves. I am looking forward to apply the strategies that I learned from the training into practice. Special note on the trainer..she was superb! She was fun and same time she gave us lot of strategies to improve Assertiveness and Self Confidence. Overall training was great." 

-Rise Network



LifeTec

"Derek was very knowledgeable in this subject. It was good to meet other people who have the same issues with self confidence as myself, its good to know your not alone. I feel that I now have some tools that I can use in both my work environment and home environment that I can put to good use to assist with some difficult situations. Thank you for such a great training session."  

-LifeTec



Telstra

"Melbourne participants absolutely loved Siobhan's delivery of the first courses. She had Engineers eating out of her hand and singing which even their manager didn't believe was possible. Everyone arrived back from breaks on time and stayed when the course ran over - this is unheard of before with this group. Bernadette heard this after the first session and so sat in on the second and loved the session and how participants were engaged - she said it was "life changing for her." "The trainer presented the training very well. She interacted with everyone nicely." 

-Telstra



QBT

"The course was an eye opener for me. I really learned a lot; and have already started practicing what I need to do at work to be more assertive. I have already run into a situation at work this morning in which I am standing up for myself and not being taken advantage of. I was able to say 'no" without being aggressive." 

-QBT



Hitachi Construction Machinery

"It was self-awareness and also knowing other people's personal type at work place. I can use everything learnt from this course. I'd like to attend again after 6months to see how I changed after the first session." 

-Hitachi Construction Machinery



Centacare Whyalla

"I felt a lot more confident after leaving that I can be a stronger person. The role playing, even as difficult to do as it was!, really opened my eyes to what I was doing wrong and enabled me to develop an action plan that was clear for me." 

-Centacare Whyalla



Struber

"The trainer did a great job presenting the content and getting everyone involved. The day was enjoyable and went really fast. Catering was nice and the training room was the perfect size for our small group. I have learnt so much more about myself and how I work and how to assert myself professionally. Great course would recommend to my peers." 

-Struber



Programmed Timber Supplies

"Amazing course, highly recommended. The most useful part of the course was being in a way forced stepping out of my comfort zone, this in result really helped develop my confidence and assertiveness." "Overall the training its self helped me in many ways. It helped me to look at other things in a different perspective. Also it allowed me to acknowledge every little victory that I had achieved each week. This course has helped me realize that I have a lot of confidence in me that I never knew I had. Thank you Peter." 

-Programmed Timber Supplies



University of Southern Queensland

"I have participated in a number of professional development training sessions over the years. This learning experience has been the most positive to date. Derek was an insightful and engaging facilitator. His enthusiasm for the topic motivated our small group to engage introspectively to maximise the learning experience. His suggestions were practical and I am inspired to put them into action. Thank you Derek." 

-University of Southern Queensland



Unitingcare Queensland

"I enjoyed the content and found the course well structured. It was excellent to see Derrick taking the time to listen and learn from each participant. I look forward to attending a freebie down the track :)" 

-Uniting Care Queensland



DNRME

"This will help me in my personal life as well as work life. I learnt a lot about myself and how I communicate and how I can be more effective. 1. Its hard to be purposeful when you don't know where you are going. 2. all the body language tips 3. Most Negative behaviour is based on Fear . 'Resolve' the fear first then you will be able to work out the aggression/passive aggressive behaviour. 4. Intention and Impact. And my favourite take away ' saying no to the action and not the PERSON!" "I think it was great that Sanet tailored her training and communication to the team that were there, and made it a bit lighthearted to get a few laughs out of them. I am definitely recommending my team to do the one day public refresher as I think the training was really beneficial for them. It also has applications for personal lives as well rather than just work impacts."

-DNRME



Institute of Public Accountants

"I don't generally give 10/10 scores on feedback however I found Siobhan very informative, engaging, knowledgeable and approachable. I felt she adjusted the course content to be more relevant to myself and the other participants and her teaching style was very unique and appropriate to the topic of the course. I will definitely be returning for the refresher course within 6 months. Thank you.

Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
