June 2012 Meeting – Confidence & Assertiveness for MIBs


“No-one can make you feel inferior without your consent”

Eleanor Roosevelt 

  • Getting your own way, no matter what?
  • Getting people to do things they don’t want to do?
  • Using sarcasm?
  • Ignoring people?
  • Keeping quiet for fear of upsetting people?
  • Saying ‘yes’ when you want to say ‘no’?

Does any of this sound like you?
