The Activity

Teams work their way around a simple board (two in each pack) and pick up cards. The cards are of three types:

  • true/false (statements about assertiveness that teams discuss and decide on)
  • language (examples of assertive, non assertive and aggressive language)
  • group tasks (questions and issues for the group to discuss and reach conclusions)

A lively Debrief follows the process where the team responses to the cards are discussed and the key learning points emphasised. Highly motivating and a good discussion generator.

Trainer's Role

  • Introduce the activity using the PowerPoint presentation provided.
  • Set up the boards, cards and playing pieces for each group.
  • Observe groups in action.
  • Lead a discussion at the end to listen to groups and consolidate the learning.

Full guidance provided in Trainer’s Notes.

I used 'The Assertiveness Game' as an add-on to our Assertiveness Training Course, which is part of our Skills Diploma Training Programme with Assistant Managers & Supervisors. It highlighted different styles of behaviour and how to react to them and identify with them. Very interactive. Kept the students involved and interested. Still talking about the course some days after it. Word soon got around about the game. Looking forward to doing some in depth evaluation of the game, I feel it got the message across quickly and it was easy to add on to an in house already recognised programme. Very good quality and value.

I recently used 'The Assertiveness Game' with great results - it really got the group talking and was an excellent way of wrapping up a one day event.
