What is this workshop about?

How many times in our lives have we felt that we haven't managed to be truly authentic and transparent in communicating our opinions, intentions and emotions? Unfortunately, it's not always easy to be assertive... it often requires a lot of effort and energy, since being assertive is not just a form of communication but also an intrinsic and personal attitude... But the advantages are countless!
