Anxiety vs. Fear
Does the thought of Public Speaking make your stomach turn?
Have you ever had a bad feeling about walking down a particular street or about a specific person? What is that strange and sometimes debilitating sensation? We all feel it sometime and can seem insurmountable. Can you control it? Use it?
Learn the difference between feelings of Anxiety and feelings of Fear, and, in the process, discover constructive ways to utilize each one, use them to better navigate the world around you.
You Can Be Assertive
Sometimes, our reactions to a situation can inflame the situation further or leave us feeling unfulfilled and maybe even upset at the outcome. When we learn to respond rather than react, we can carefully choose the steps we take. You can stand your ground, firmly, without aggression or passivity, and without further escalation. Assertiveness Training helps pave the way to clear communications, open debate, and conflict resolution.
Most conflicts can be defused with just a few words, but most of us don't know how. Learn to identify the type of confrontation that you are involved in, to see the verbal and non-verbal cues that are being transmitted to you, and appropriate responses which will help de-escalate and calm the situation.
How much private information about yourself and your loved ones do you give away without realizing it? Most of us don't even think about it, but even the bumper stickers we put on our cars broadcast personal information that an Identity Thief can use against you. Find out how much information you are simply giving away and explore ways to better insulate yourself from Identity Theft and similar crimes.
