Assertiveness Skills course in Southampton

The course was really interesting and full of really useful, practical tips that I can use both in my professional life and in my personal life. Lynne, the trainer, was interested in my work and used Read More examples from my life to help make the content more applicable to me. She focused on areas I felt weakest in, and helped give me assurance areas I felt the least confident. I felt really confident after the course, as I left with practical skills I knew I could translate into actions. I would highly recommend this course.

-Katie Lees – 15th November 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Assertiveness Skills

I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It was moulded to suit myself and another colleague on the course. I learned a lot about assertiveness and how to use those skills within my work place. I received a Read More very useful hand out booklet which covered all of the things discussed within the course.

-Laura Elliott – 23rd September 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Assertiveness skills

I thoroughly enjoyed my assertiveness skills training. Having had no previous training I was fascinated from start to finish, having not quite realised that ‘assertiveness’ is a skill we can all Read More learn and not just something we’re born with! I have picked up lots of practical tips that I am determined to put into practice. The trainer was excellent and the fact that it was a small group meant I felt extremely comfortable speaking out and was able to fully participate. A good venue too, and the lunch was delicious! I would (and have) highly recommended the course to others.

-Debbie Spauls – 30th August 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Assertiveness Training Skills

i had a lovely day on the Course, the facilitator was courteous and a pleasure to deal with. My own opinion would be that it would have been great to have gotten some “General Phrases” to be used Read More until the training became more fluid to me. i know there are a few in the exercise book given on the day, but as we didn’t really look at it, its not the same trying to go through it myself.

-Margaret Mullins – 7th August 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Response from Revolution Learning and Development Ltd

Thank you, Margaret, for taking some time to write a review. Your feedback is incredibly useful. I will discuss the points about building in some general phrases to use during the course – this is a really good piece of feedback and something we will definitely act on. We do provide very detailed course materials, but for the same reason we don’t use PowerPoint, we don’t want to feel that we are just reading from the workbook. We’ll look at how we can get those phrases out of the workbook and into some kind of exercise maybe.

Thank you once again for your review and your feedback.

David – Managing Director

Great Trainer and Course

Very useful information taken away from this course.
The group was very small which meant our trainer Lynne was able to relate the course to our personal experiences which we had explained to her Read More which was extremely helpful.
Lots of different styles of learning are used throughout the day which is helpful to suit everyone.

-Stacey – 26th June 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Excellent assertiveness course

This was quite possibly one of the most useful courses I’ve attended in a number of years. I was able to take several practical tools that I learnt from the course that I’ll be able to apply next time Read More I need to be assertive.
The group was very small so our trainer Lynne was able to tailor the course to our individual needs and circumstances, while also giving us the opportunity to work on theoretical exercises.

-Carys Hedd Paschalis – 9th May 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Assertiveness Training Course

Our course with Lyndsey was fantastic. The course was so much more useful and fascinating than I could have imagined; and the trainer Lyndsey tailored it specifically for my needs.

Review Solvay for RLD.

Great atmosphere and both instructors Lynne/Andrew were very engaging and knowledgeable. Would recommend them and the company to others.

-James Bramwell – 8th May 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

Took a Lot Away

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 Read More 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.

-Alan Bramwell – 1st May 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course


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

-George Pallister – 12th March 2019 – Assertiveness Skills Training Course

My Course Was Great

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 Read More 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.
