Be Assertive & Gain Respect as an Introvert

Without Being Arrogant or Rude

Do you find it hard to set boundaries and be assertive?

Maybe you’re an introvert who tends to people-please to prevent conflict and avoid disapproval.

But there’s a problem.

The more you try to please people, the less people seem to respect you.

You end up feeling depleted and discouraged. And yet…

You may have a deep fear of voicing your true thoughts and being more assertive with friends, family and colleagues.

On top of this, you may not know HOW to do so without coming off as aggressive or arrogant.

After all, you’ve dealt with “assertive” extroverts before who were really just bullies. You wonder…

Can an introvert truly be assertive?

Introverts absolutely can become authentically assertive. Because here’s the thing.

REAL assertiveness is a win-win for you and the people in your life.

It helps you to feel less stressed and anxious when things don’t go as expected.

You’ll worry less about what others think and learn to trust yourself.

You’ll also feel more satisfied with your job and in your personal relationships knowing that people respect your thoughts, opinions and boundaries.

Of course, you’ll feel less drained too because you’ll be able to say “no” without guilt.

That’s why I created my NEW Introvert Assertiveness Workshop.

Finally you can trust in a step-by-step assertiveness framework designed with the specific challenges of an introvert in mind.

With this 1.5-hour Introvert Assertiveness Workshop you’ll discover how to…

  • Communicate assertively in your personal and professional relationships, even if you’re normally quiet
  • Confidently set healthy boundaries without conflict, anxiety or guilt
  • Stop people-pleasing so that you can gain respect and feel appreciated
  • Skillfully handle conflict in a way that actually improves your relationships
  • Influence others and become a natural leader—all while honouring your introversion!

You’ll also receive a workbook containing exercises and questions to support your assertiveness journey.


What People Are Saying About My Methods

Michaela also helped me to develop healthy boundaries and be more assertive. I especially enjoyed the communication practice and how it’s helping me to initiate conversations.

As an INFJ people pleaser who puts everyone else’s needs first, I felt like I was at the end of my rope. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to be more assertive, set boundaries, and prioritize self-care.


I now have a lot more confidence in my approach with people and also has helped me identify other people’s possible strengths and weaknesses.

Does Assertiveness Training Work For Introverts?

My assertiveness tools work even if you’re normally quiet and get stressed by confrontation.

THEY WORK if you’re an introvert through and through like me. Period.
