Created by TJ Walker - BestSelling Personal Development & Habits Expert

Students: 92185, Price:  Paid

Communication Skills are the most important personal skills you can ever develop for your success in life. Life is a series of communications. Those who develop strong communication skills do well in school, secure jobs and promotions and often ascend to the highest levels of leadership in corporations, governments and civic life. People who fail to develop communication skills often have their careers stagnate or plateau in the mid-range. Sadly, presentation skills are either not taught in primary or secondary education or are taught poorly.

The Complete Communication Skills Masterclass for Life course is your way to get a Master's level education on how to communicate effectively.

This course is designed to be a one stop shop for all your communication skills training needs. This course covers a vast array of communication needs and scenarios, from how to communicate during a job interview, pitching investors, asking for a raise, speaking one on one or to large groups. And it covers how to speak to big corporations when you have a problem with service, plus public speaking for kids, how to deliver a wedding speech and even a eulogy. You will also become a master of persuasion, assertiveness and all aspects of business communication. Your leadership abilities will expand dramatically as your social skills grow to allow you to communicate effectively in every situation.

This course has the following:

  1. More lectures on communication skills than any other course on Udemy, by far.

  2. More hours of communication skills training than any other course (30 hours long. Sometimes More is More!)

  3. More in-depth training techniques than any other course.

"I've devoted the last 30 years of my life conducting live, in-person communication skills to Presidents, Prime Ministers, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Senators, Nobel Peace Prize Winners and Professional Athletes. Now, I'm excited to bring to you these same insider secrets that will transform you into an excellent presenter. If you take this course and do a few simple homework assignments, I am absolutely convinced I can make your communication skills world-class. You WILL be able to do the following in EVERY Presentation:

  1. Look comfortable, confident and relaxed, regardless of whether you are sitting or standing, regardless of audience size.

  2. Communicate so your audience understands you.

  3. Communicate so your audience remembers your messages (this is the hardest part).

  4. Influence people to take the actions you want."

Students: 13188, Price:  Paid

You CAN tell people what you truly think and feel, and you can set boundaries when you need to. You just need to learn how to communicate assertively to do it effectively.

Assertive communication is a critical skill for emerging leaders, new managers, and people who are more introverted in social situations.

When you know how to communicate assertively, you can say “no” without feeling guilty, set boundaries to protect your time, priorities and goals, articulate requests clearly and confidently, and deal with awkward situations with ease.

Imagine being able to lift the frustration, stress and anxiety you normally feel when you have to stand up for yourself. Imagine life without people walking over you because they respect the boundaries you have set. Imagine people looking at you as a strong, confident person.

All of this is possible and learning how to communicate assertively will help you achieve it.

I’m Kara Ronin and I’m a Best-Selling Udemy Instructor, leadership coach and trainer. I specialise in helping people develop their leadership presence, communication, reputation and relationships.

I’ve helped many of my in-person clients transform their communication and become more assertive, and I’m dedicated to helping you do the same in this video course.

“Kara, Thank you for a very interesting, informative and inspiring Masterclass!” Jeanette, Lawyer

Assertive communication is not about being bossy. It’s about taking control of your communication and your life. It allows you to communicate clearly and honestly to people around you. This in turn helps you to come across as more authentic.

  • become more reflective of your communication style and break bad communication habits

  • overcome your fears about being assertive and speaking up honestly

  • make clear requests with your friends, family and work colleagues

  • better manage conflict and difficult conversations

  • make your job and life less stressful because you know how to protect your time, priorities and goals

You will not be alone on your journey to becoming more assertive. This 3-hour course not only includes 44 high-quality videos where I walk you through practical strategies that I use with my coaching clients. It also includes six coaching worksheets, a case study, quizzes, and conversation transcripts to help you move your assertive communication skills forward.

Assertive communication is a skill that will absolutely help you in your life. Learning how to communicate assertively has helped me immensely in my personal and business life, I know it can help you too.

When you know how to communicate assertively, you will finally be able to start living your life exactly the way you want. You’ll no longer be allowing other people to direct your life or force you into decisions because you don’t know how to say “no”.

This course will empower you to live your life on your terms. I’d be honoured if you joined me on this journey.

Say NO to People Pleasing

Become the Assertive and Authentic YOU!

Created by Arial Els van de Schoot - Professional spiritual caregiver


Students: 8034, Price: Free

Students: 8034, Price:  Free

“People pleasing” is acting in ways that are not authentically you in order to please other people. Do you have difficulty with saying no? Do you find yourself doing things for others that you actually don’t want to do? And what if someone is doing something that affects you in a negative way? Do you dare to tell them? Do you ask people to stop when you don’t like what they are doing with you? Do you sometimes lie about your preferences to make life easier for others? Do you hide your emotions to not disturb them?

Some people who become aware of themselves displaying this kind of behavior start calling themselves “people pleasers”. You will not hear me using that term though because I don’t want you to start thinking of yourself as having some fixed people pleasing identity. People pleasing is just a behavior, based on a mindset that’s not serving you, and you can totally learn to choose other beliefs and perspectives, and start to make self-empowering choices that honour you, and which will at the same time serve others more too. 

And that’s exactly what we’re going to do in this free course on assertiveness and authenticity.

In this course you will learn:

  • The right mindset that will back up your new self-empowered choices, including:

  • Saying no to others is saying yes to yourself

  • The right perspectives on egoism, laziness, assertiveness, and responsibility

  • A positive self-image

  • To say no to relationships in which no is a wrong answer

  • You will also learn how to change your people pleasing behaviour

  • You will learn to take your time when deciding on whether you want to help someone, how to be strong in your no, and set your boundaries

  • How to make this shift in a gentle and easy way by taking baby steps, talking positive to yourself and using affirmations


I learned to stop people pleasing the hard way. I especially had a big problem with saying no and letting others know when I didn’t like something they were doing with me. Sometimes if you don’t learn a lesson, life will bring you clearer and clearer opportunities to step into your power. During my first sexual relationship, I established the habit to not tell my partner when penetrative sex was painful for me because I was afraid to see him frustrated with not having had an orgasm, and ashamed of my body not living up to his expectations and desires. This resulted in many many many vaginal infections during different relationships. It took me six years before I finally learned the lesson: my body is mine and I do not have any responsibility to make the other person feel good. I put myself first. Now it feels like a loving obligation towards myself: I take the responsibility to take good care of my body. If sex hurts, I will tell the other person and stop if necessary, regardless of how this will make the other person feel. Believe me, my sex life has become far more pleasant since!

The lessons in this course:

  1. People Pleasing has No Benefits
  2. Saying “No” is Saying Yes
  3. You’re Not an Egoist!
  4. You can be Empathic, Caring ánd Assertive
  5. You’re Not Responsible for Other People’s Happiness
  6. Respect Yourself, have a Positive Self-image
  7. No Reason to be Afraid of Rejecting or Being Rejected
  8. Don’t Care about People’s Expectations
  9. Say No to Relationships in which no is a Wrong Answer
  10. Take Your Time to Make Your Decision
  11. Be Strong in Your No
  12. Be Explicit with Your Boundaries
  13. Baby Steps & Positive Self-Talk
  14. Use Positive Affirmations
  15. Completion Exercise


Saying “No” is Saying Yes

When you say “no” to someone else, you’re saying yes to you. Because you’re respecting your desires and boundaries, you allow yourself to be authentic, you refuse to do what you don’t want to do, and so you take care of yourself and your happiness.

You’re also saying yes to healthy relationships in which both parties can freely ask each other for favors, where no is an acceptable answer, and where both parties only act on shared desires, thereby keeping the relationship clean of resentment and full of joy.

Saying “no” to someone is at the same time saying yes to them. Because it’s also for their best interests that the relationship stays clean and that you don’t give them the bad experience of someone reluctantly doing something for or with them. If you would never dare to say no or enforce your boundaries, they might notice and stop enjoying your help and company.

So you see that saying “no” is actually saying yes to yourself, the other person, and the relationship you have together.

This course on assertiveness and authentic relating is completely free. Feel to just have a look! If you have any questions, please ask in the Q&A.

Assertiveness course: Assertive communication & negotiation

Assertiveness training that will help you ask for things, stand up for yourself, negotiate and communicate better

Created by Alex Genadinik - Business, Entrepreneurship, SEO, Marketing, Amazon, YouTube


Students: 5790, Price: $19.99

Students: 5790, Price:  Paid

Learn assertive communication that helps you and the person with whom you are communicating. After you master assertive communication, learn to use it in various professional scenarios, including negotiation.

We communicate every day. Why not learn how to be more open, transparent, and get people on our side with our communication? That's exactly what happens when you are assertive. You define your boundaries not by being rude or authoritarian, but by being transparent and honest. This gets people to understand your situation, sympathize with you, and after they sympathize with you, they will be much more likely to help you instead of step over your boundaries.


This course has many examples. After you learn assertiveness, you will see examples for how to use it in friendly situations, at work, at home, and when to not use it.

The second part of the course focuses on a specific use of assertiveness, and that is during negotiations. Negotiations are not just for high-stakes business deals. They happens every day at various levels.


We are often not assertive because we don't want to cause a conflict or make a big deal. But if this continues, other people can being to push us, tell us who we are, step over our boundaries, and more. This can have the effect of ruining our confidence and even our feeling of self-worth. Instead, learn to handle difficult situations with grace so you and your communication partners can move forward in an ideal way.

Assert Yourself – Master the benefits of assertive behaviour

How to develop confidence and communication skills to ensure positive outcomes from your interactions with others

Created by Skill Boosters - Films for a better workplace


Students: 4821, Price: $44.99

Students: 4821, Price:  Paid

Being able to assert yourself and communicate effectively is key to building good working relationships. This course takes an engaging look at how to develop confidence and communication skills to ensure positive outcomes from your interactions with others. 

When we find ourselves under pressure or in confrontational situations, we may react aggressively - or we may back down and say nothing. Neither approach is likely to result in a positive outcome and we’re likely to come away from the situation wishing we’d handled things differently. Failure to assert ourselves and communicate clearly can have a negative impact on our interactions with colleagues, clients and customers and is likely to affect our personal effectiveness and productivity as well.

Assert yourself is an engaging, interactive learning experience that helps you to develop the skills and confidence you need to ensure that your interactions with others are positive, respectful and productive.

Assertiveness is a key life skill and has a key role to play not just in terms of how others perceive you but more importantly how you perceive yourself. How you behave in a situation determines how others respond to you and treat you. That response has a bearing on your own self-esteem. Your self-esteem determines how confident you are the next time while interacting with others and how you behave in that particular situation. This is a cause and effect relationship. How you behave in a situation is the key. If you behave assertively, others around you will treat you right and you will feel more confident, leading to you getting what you want.

If you are assertive, you are able to disagree with people when the need arises, you are able to say no without worrying about the relationship and you are able to ask for what you need/want. There is a fine difference between being assertive vis-à-vis being aggressive or passive. Assertive people do not feel stress or anxiety in standing up for themselves and dealing with difficult situations.

Have you ever said yes to something you really wanted to say no to? Have you ever kept quiet when you should have spoken up? Do you want to discover ways to stand up for yourself, confidently assert opinions, and get more of what you want?

I'd bet that you said "YES!" to one or all of those questions! All of the situations mentioned above require self-advocacy, the ability to advocate successfully for your own wants and needs. Self-advocacy is an essential skill in work and life. You are the one person best suited to look out for your own interests. The more you can speak up for yourself, using your voice to communicate confidently and assertively with others, the better conditions you will create to achieve your goals.

So we all need to self-advocate. But how do we get there? In this course, you'll:

  • Define self-advocacy and its value in the workplace

  • Create a self-advocacy goal to focus on what you want to achieve

  • Determine and reflect on your personal communication style

  • Differentiate between passive, aggressive, and assertive communication

  • Discover The GROW Model, a framework to help you set and achieve goals

  • Recognize self-advocacy bad habits that may be holding you back

  • Identify strategies to communicate more assertively

  • Establish when and how to say no

  • Identify how to find a sponsor

I built this course with plenty of activities so you can put what you're learning into practice. You'll spend some time reflecting on who you are, figuring out what you want, and creating a plan to make it happen. By the end of this course, you'll have a toolkit of assertive strategies to effectively advocate for yourself.

In my career, I've seen firsthand how important self-advocacy can be. You can't simply wait for things to happen - you need to make them happen by expressing yourself and standing up for what you want. Depending on where you're starting on your self-advocacy journey, this may seem daunting. And that's ok! But as your instructor, I'm here to tell you IT IS possible. You CAN be your own champion.

We look at family dynamics, aggression, and reasons why perfectly good people might play games… possibly even you do without realising! Then we detail exactly what you can say or do: like how to be Assertive, ways to live with these people comfortably, how to play the game back (and better!), and more.

I have already started taking action! Highly recommended course for anyone who wants to be more assertive and confident in their personal and professional life. A*" - Janet, Udemy student.

Assertive communication is widely regarded to be the most effective style of communication.

It’s important for nearly all aspects of our lives. From friendships, relationships, and family, to work and success – if we are able to communicate assertively, we are much more likely to create the results that we want.

Since 2009, TJ Guttormsen has worked with people from all over the world to improve their communication skills. He has done over 100 national media appearances, published several books, written hundreds of articles, and taught seminars and courses to thousands of people from all walks of life, from over 135 countries.

His other courses on Udemy have several times been the highest-rated courses in their categories, and the positive feedback from students getting real-world results keep flowing in.

Now he has put together a comprehensive course on Authentic Assertiveness that will teach you how to communicate in such a way that it will inspire others to truly want to listen to you.

When you master authentic assertiveness you’ll be the kind of person who can comfortably ask for what you want, share your opinions, make decisions, take initiatives, and more – in ways that will make both you and the people you’re talking to feel good about it all.

"I suffer from a lack of assertiveness and have been told by friends and managers alike that I need to speak up for myself more and say what it is I want. This course is providing me with the right information and the best track forward." - 5-star rating from Benjamin Schneider, Udemy student.

"This is a comprehensive course that provides both the psychological background for assertiveness, along with easily understandable examples and exercises. Highly recommended!" - 5-star rating from Tor Anestad, Udemy student.

Authentic Assertiveness.

Authentic Assertiveness is not your average assertiveness course. It's not about being the loudest or most insisting person in the room. It's not about having to always be in charge. It's not about using power to get your way.

Authentic Assertiveness is about being comfortable speaking your mind, asking for what you want, saying no, saying yes, taking initiatives, handling disagreements, setting boundaries, giving invitations - and all the other things that make our lives better.

It’s about communicating with others in a connected way which will make you stand out as not just assertive and influential – but also respectful and more socially intelligent than most.

In other words, people won't listen to you because you're loud, forceful, or domineering. They'll listen to you because you're connected with them and because they'll WANT to hear what you have to say.

They'll listen because you'll know how to skillfully share your thoughts, opinions, needs, and wants. They'll listen because they trust your judgment and respect your insights. They'll listen because they want your input - or because they want to help.

To help you achieve this, the course covers the psychology of assertiveness, how to create habits that will make assertiveness feel natural, conversational techniques that will help you handle a variety of situations, as well as how to deal with disagreements and conflicts in a productive and positive way.

So you see, this is not yet another quick-fix, fake-it-till-you-make-it course with a bunch of superficial advice that sounds good but works poorly. This course’s purpose is to help you become an authentically assertive person – inside and out.

And the best part about it?

You don’t have to become another person or act outside of your own values or ethics at all. Authentic assertiveness is all about learning how to be an assertive you.

So, if that sounds like something you might want to learn more about, sign up now and take your first step towards new and better social results.

"The course is amazingly helpful. It contains a lot of information, backgrounds, explanations and examples about the common issues with communications and how to solve them. TJ explains the subject clearly and simply, and takes the necessary time to explain everything. The course covers a lot of topics to be studied and practiced, and it is necessary to go back and listen again to the lessons, but every time it seems that you learn something new. 100% recommended" - 5-star rating from Moises Lorenzo León, Udemy student.

Assertiveness Training: Gain Respect and Personal Power

Learn to assert yourself to achieve your dreams and your desires. Live a richer, more confident, more fulfilling life.

Assertive people ask for what they want and don’t let others either intimidate them or enrage them. They speak up to express their needs and desires. They hold true to their internal power and the little voice inside that asks to be heard. They speak calmly and diplomatically, carefully and firmly, without offending reasonable people. They comfortably say “no” when they need to, without belittling or insulting others.       

Assertive people are neither passive nor aggressive. Passive people know they need assertiveness training to find their voice and not allow others to take advantage of them or dismiss them. They need help finding ways to stand up for themselves and be heard!       

Aggressive people don’t usually think they need assertiveness training because they believe they get their needs met just fine. The thing is, aggressive people roll over others, bullying them into submission. Even if they cover their aggression with humor, they bully others without concern for other people’s feelings or needs. This isn’t okay either. Aggressive people need help finding ways to be more respectful of others during moments of conflict, and to behave appropriately.       

This course helps both passive people and aggressive people find their voice within the appropriate expressions of assertiveness. It helps passive people find the strength to speak up, and it helps aggressive people stop bullying.     

The material for this course comes entirely from science. Investigators and researchers have spent their lives examining assertive communication and how it differs from both passive and aggressive communication. That’s one thing that makes this course different from the others out there. It’s not about the instructor’s individual perspectives at all, but tested and proven strategies and techniques.   

Another thing that sets this course apart from other assertiveness courses is that we are not interested in why people are passive or aggressive at all. In fact, communication research says that for some people these characteristics are in their DNA while for others it’s in their conditioning. We simply don’t care about that. We only care about the communication behaviors that make assertiveness happen. We start with definitions about assertive communication and how it differs from passive and aggressive communication, then work through many ways that assertiveness can show in your communication behaviors. Exercises help reinforce your learning and give you practice for when certain situations arise in your real life. Quizzes make sure you’re following along properly.   

So stop getting walked on, and stop walking on people to get your way! Learn assertive communication and improve your own well-being and communication appropriateness. Just a couple of hours can change your life for the better. Becoming more assertive is just a matter of learning what that looks like. This course shows you how!

To be passive is to let others decide for you. To be aggressive is to decide for others. To be assertive is to decide for yourself. And to trust that there is enough, that you are enough. Edith Eva Eger

Once you have a major success with assertiveness, you learn that it's a much healthier path than being a doormat to the insensitive folks. You gain respect for yourself, have more time for your priorities, and develop authentic and healthier relationships. ― Doreen Virtue

You can learn how to stand up for yourself and your own needs and desires, without infringing on the rights of others! Who does not want to have this skill? Allow us to lead you to self-confidence and making the best decisions for yourself.

We live in a society where the focus is often on developing our intellectual and physical abilities. However, we need many more skills to function effectively on a day-to-day basis. In our work, we often encounter very intelligent people who struggle to control their emotions, to build meaningful relationships, to assert themselves with confidence, who cannot cope with stress, resolve conflict or deal with disappointments.    

We are two facilitators for this course, Drs Ronél le Roux and Rina de Klerk-Weyer, who both have a Ph.D. We did therapy in our private practices before we realised that it is very important to work pro-actively. Working in this way means that we teach and guide people in learning important life skills that they will be able to use in their personal and professional lives. People who have these skills can apply it before and while they experience problems in their lives.

Are you tired of holding back in conversations?

Are you fed up of people taking advantage of you?

Perhaps you find it difficult to remain composed when someone frustrates you?

If you don’t speak up for yourself, refuse to make decisions, or let others dictate your actions – people start to view you as a bit of a pushover, or someone who lacks confidence – neither of these are advantageous, especially in the workplace.

Often, it’s easier for you to swallow your feelings, shout at someone or give them the silent treatment.  But assertiveness is a much better strategy.

We’ve all had moments when we’ve failed to speak up for ourselves and said “yes” when we really wanted to say no.

No matter how confident you are, most of us wonder if perhaps we couldn’t be just a bit more assertive in certain situations.

Luckily, assertiveness is a learned ability.  It’s learned through practice.

Whatever your reasons for wanting to become more assertive, in this course you can explore basic skills and strategies to improve your assertiveness and develop your emotional intelligence.

This course will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to become more assertive, taking control of your life in the process.

Your assertiveness is your ability to express your feelings, beliefs, and thoughts and defend your rights in a non-destructive way. It involves effectively and constructively expressing your emotions so that you can be forthright and frank when putting your views across.

Your assertiveness considers how far you will go to stand up your rights for what you perceive is right.  Assertiveness and aggression are two very different things although the two qualities are often somewhat confused.  Aggression involves hostile acts or feelings whereas assertiveness is your confidence in being able to show determination with persistence and constructively argue your own views in a calm and positive way.

If you are not naturally assertive, it can take some effort, but being more assertive is not impossible. For this to work you must approach them with an open mind and be ready to put into practice what you learn.

Use this course to help you boost your assertiveness.  You can work through the entire course, or, because we all have busy lives, you have the option to go straight to particular skills you’d like to work on.

Completing this course, you'll be able to

  • Define everyone's rights and responsibilities around being assertive

  • Differentiate between passive, aggressive and assertive behaviour

  • Recognise the implications of passive, aggressive and assertive behaviour, and passive-aggressive behaviour

  • Identify methods and techniques to express assertive behaviour effectively

  • Explore how to be assertive in appropriate ways

  • Explain some ways to say "No" without feeling guilty

  • State the rules of assertiveness

  • Develop ways to improve your level of assertiveness

This course is a standalone course for anyone interested in understanding how to manage, work with and use assertiveness.  It compliments other courses that explore emotional intelligence in more depth.

You'll receive all the information that you need and will be coached using loads of practical hints that you can use straight away.

The course is made up of a series of lectures and a series of interactive exercises that involve some activity with other people and some reflection.

PLEASE NOTE - This course is NOT for you if you are not prepared to work through the exercises that make up a fundamental part of the course.  Assertiveness cannot be developed just by watching the video lectures.  It requires you to do some reflective thinking, to get some feedback and to discuss your development with others.  I'm afraid that you won't get the best from the course unless you are prepared to do this.

This course is being continually refined and updated to ensure it remains current and relevant.
