 Testimonials: The ExpertRating Online Personality Development Course has received overwhelming positive feedback and reviews from students around the world. Here are a few:

"Bravo! I loved this course. I plan to use the many skills I have learned to help me return to the work force. After reading the section on interviews, I know I'll be confident to find a job."

"Great course. I really learned a lot about myself, family and others. I learned many life lessons about becoming assertive with family, friends, and on the job. I really appreciate the information and am applying it with great success to my life. I strongly recommend this class to anyone but especially to women of all ages. It's never too late to learn new tricks."

"Hi, I really enjoyed this lesson. I am an employer and I was not as assertive as I could be. This class and especially this lesson helped me to be more assertive with my employees. I have an aggressive employee who just speaks what is always on her mind without thinking. I now look her straight in the eye, relax my body pose and address the statement instead of not saying anything at all. I used to hold it in and say to myself she did not mean it that way, etc. But, I would get angry as time went on because of it and would hold a grudge. Now when I speak to her assertively, she now apologizes for her behavior and lately now she has been trying to become my closer friend. She respects me more now and actually likes when I stand up to her. It feels awesome, and I feel so much more in control. She has even given me a small office gift and card to thank me for being a great boss! Need I say more???"

"I came to this class looking for ideas to help me learn how to supervise at work…I have a great assertive boss and it can be easy to push the blame onto her when I have to discipline or criticize the people I supervise. I want to stand on my own and have my own directions taken seriously, and this course has helped…Lots of helpful ideas. I have saved all of the lessons and links and I know I will be referring back to them."

"I found it very interesting of what type of person I was and definitely found this course very helpful and will help me to use this information to be an assertive person."

"I have enjoyed this class so much. What a wealth of information! I had a limited view as to what assertiveness is. I realize now it covers every aspect of my life. I am amazed, that in this short period of time, I have a better self-image and am feeling confident, even to the point of having been assertive about a situation at work that had bothered me for years. Having all this information, references, and different points brought out in the discussion area to review from time to time will keep me progressing. Thank you so very much, Vivian!!!"

"I have learned a lot from taking this course. I find myself becoming more assertive in my daily life. Thanks to this course, I feel that I am on the way to becoming a more confident person!"

"I have taken many courses and have never enjoyed a course more. Every time I would finish an assignment I couldn't wait for the next one to be released. I think more of these types of courses should be offered. You are a great teacher and your lessons are very interesting."

Assertive people make good leaders.

Being assertive is often confused with being rude or being aggressive which is not true. You can be polite yet assertive. Assertiveness means putting across your ideas and views clearly and confidently in front of others and the same time respecting viewpoints and feelings of others. Not being assertive can leave you depressed and can cause resentment. It has been observed that some of the most stressed people around are the ones who lack the skill to simply say 'no' for fear of upsetting others.


You should turn down things which are immaterial to your success in the long term. It is not however, that you be assertive in every situation and with everyone. The ExpertRating Get Assertive Certification course will give you tips on how to be more confident and will improve your low self-esteem.
