PREPARATION

In preparation for this workshop, please send your response to the following to Sarah by Thursday 25 April.

Write down an assertive request or suggestion you would like to make to someone more senior – ideally, something you’ve been wanting to say, but haven’t yet plucked up the courage. Examples might be:  

​ 

  • You’re frustrated with how something is working and you want to suggest a better way of doing things 

  • Team morale is low and you need something from senior management to help deal with this issue 

  • You urgently need support to help you overcome a current challenge
