ASSERTIVE: How To Ask For What You Want - CHICAGO

  • Pizzeria Serio 1708 West Belmont Avenue Chicago, IL, 60657 United States (map)

(FIRST, this workshop was originally on Saturday, September 16 from 10:30am - 1:30pm. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to change the date. It is now on Sunday, October 1 from 12noon - 3pm - - More info below.)

Women are taught to be passive or aggressive but NOT assertive. We are not taught to ask for what we want. We are not taught to ask for help. Society has shown us to be passive and when things don't work out, we get angry and frustrated and wonder why we didn't get what we wanted. Let's change all that. Let's learn to be ASSERTIVE! Let's learn to ask for what we want in life. Through relationships, careers, friendships, jobs, family, and everywhere in between.  

Please join this 3-hour interactive workshop as we talk about HOW to be ASSERTIVE and WHY women are not taught to do this. Come learn the ABCs of How Women Are Socialized and even relearn our ABCs. It's going to be awesome! Awesome, because you will be there.

Passive. Aggressive. Assertive. There is a difference. There’s a time and place for each one. Please join Beth Dugan and I for this interactive workshop.

While this event is directed towards women, ALL women & men are welcome.
