Happiness is not a luxury, it is our default state

Do you know what "mental gum" is? It is safe to say that almost every one of us has ever been in a state of experiencing negative emotions that eat us up from the inside, do not let us sleep, spinning in our heads again and again. Sharpness, irritation, a broken voice from anger or a whisper full of fear or sadness. If you have never come home and vented anger at your loved ones or colleagues in the office, if you can always say "no" to an offer that doesn't suit you or you don’t like, stop reading this! This is not for you. You are the rare person who already has what we call assertiveness.

Now imagine that we live in a world where everyone respects the other with a sincere desire to build a warm and trusting relationship. Leaders manage their team with confidence and equanimity, your loved ones don't take offense, and there is no jealousy or destructive anger in this world. And not because emotions have disappeared, but because we have learned to understand and be aware of them. Moreover, we have learned to live our natural emotions, without fail returning to the main one - happiness.

Emotional Assertiveness hypothesis is that we are all born with the capacity to express emotion authentically and it is in the school of life that we learned how to be less able to be open and honest about our emotions.

So stop running from your emotions and learn to live with them.  

WHY Emotional Assertiveness

Harmony and balance in professional and private relationship

Over the past twenty-five years, a huge amount of literature has been written and many important studies have been conducted on the topic of emotional intelligence. It is no secret that emotions play an important role in achieving success in a professional environment and personal context. However, few books show the way to develop emotional intelligence skills. And even fewer people actually use emotions as tools to achieve success in business and happiness in life. 

John Parr developed a logical model that explains the functions of emotions, which he calls the emotional vortex. He has also developed workshops for people who want to live an emotionally fulfilling life. 

The emotional assertiveness workshop is designed specifically to offer personal development in being emotionally assertive. In the course of training, you will develop and hone these skills. This training is specifically designed to encourage personal growth and development, as well as provide real tools for building more open, honest, productive, trusting and respectful relationships.

This program is designed to build both knowledge and skills in Emotional Empowerment.

Take control of your emotions

Build your emotional maturity

So what is assertiveness and how to become assertive?

Assertiveness is the ability to communicate constructively and effectively while remaining in your comfortable emotional zone and observing the boundaries of the interlocutor. Being assertive means being able to stand up for what you think is right, ask for what you want, and say NO to what you don't want, confidently, calmly, and respectfully. This is what we call emotional maturity.

Emotions are our body's tools to keep us happy through effective communication. Emotions help us navigate the relationship environment. Emotionally intelligent people build more effective relationships and, as a result, increase the effectiveness of team members and thus of entire organization.

Emotional Assertiveness is the act of selflessly expressing your true emotions with the clear goal of strengthening and deepening friendship and cooperation. As such, it is an important building block of healthy families, teams, and organizations.
