Building Confidence for Women – postponed due to tutor illness
Women are the backbone of our trade union, standing up for colleagues in local workplaces as reps and managing complex busy lives. However, often women don’t feel they have confidence to stand up for themselves focusing on everyone else’s needs but don’t take the time or have the confidence work on our own needs. Too often we say yes when we really want to say no, don’t ask for what we really want and shy away from opportunities when they arise. The good news is that self-confidence can be learned and we can build a set of skills that will encourage you to respond differently.
Come along to this one day course and find out how you can take the first steps to changing your life.
