The Leadership Communication Masterclass will help you get clarity on your thoughts and express yourself in an assertive, confident way in business situations. You will also learn how to overcome your fears and limiting beliefs about being assertive – when this block is lifted, you can tap into your assertiveness skills in the moment.

– Learn about common limiting beliefs that stop you from being assertive in the moment.
– Start to conquer your limiting beliefs so you can feel more comfortable being assertive.

Leaders who have the ability to communicate assertively can speak up and establish their credibility without hesitation. They also appear more authentic because people know exactly what they want, think and feel. Authentic communication is honest communication. It’s what separates managers from leaders.

The Leadership Communication Masterclass is designed for emerging leaders who want to leverage their voice and have more impact in business situations.

Leadership Communication Masterclass, Perth“On July 22 I officially took over as the Executive Officer for Golf Management Australia WA division. Anyone who has met me would say I’m a fairly outgoing confident person, but the reality was on the inside my confidence in the task ahead was low. I was nervous! So I signed up for Kara Ronin’s Leadership Communication Masterclass that was being held the day before I took over. The timing was perfect and I guess in a way I thought that with the right communication style and a refresh on basic skills I would get some confidence back. Well thanks to Kara meeting all of my expectations. And a big thank you to being more assertive in my communication and confident in my decision making. It has honestly made my first couple of weeks more enjoyable and less stressful and I’m looking forward to attending another workshop in the future. Thanks Kara”
