Towson eLearning Center (TEC) Featured Course of the Month

Asserting Yourself Professionally [comm_10_a01_bs_enus] (Elective course for the Management & Supervision Certificate)
Do you sometimes wonder if your professional style is too passive-hesitant and weak? Or do you find yourself acting too aggressively toward your co-workers or subordinates--too critical and overbearing? Do you wonder if there is another professional style that might be better for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's a good time to learn to be an assertive business professional. This course will guide you as you move into a proactive, responsible, professional style. You'll learn methods to help you identify an appropriate assertive style and strategies to prepare you use that style. You'll also learn how to implement the assertive style in your work environment. With the assistance of this course, you'll no longer worry about being "too passive" or "too aggressive."
