So I would like to thank New Skills Academy for the skills I have gained
I found this course extremely beneficial. I was finding it difficult to appropriately respond to colleagues who requested tasks of me, that I didn’t feel that was my job to do.
Now I have completed this course, I feel able to begin testing what I have learnt in real life, I have already started changing my body language, responding to some requests in an assertive manner, whereas before I would act passively, agreeing to do every single request given to me, which is quite exhausting!
So I would like to thank New Skills Academy for the skills I have gained, I am also able to apply these skills to my personal life as well as my professional life, thank you!
