Assertiveness Role Plays

Assertiveness Role Plays

Didn't find your answer?


I am putting together an interactive assertiveness & decision making course within which I want to incorporate a number of role plays. Would any one have any suggestions of role plays I might use or suggest anywhere I may find a variety of role plays I could consider using? Thanks.

depending on what generic area delegates need to be more assertive in, I may be able to help. I have some scenarios for performance management assertiveness.

Hello Fiona,

We have a workbook, Effectiveness = My Competence + Communication, developed and validated on an assertiveness model. It has many scenarios for practicing assertive communication. It may be used in a group workshop or as self-study. Take a look at the MMHA web site,

Invite each delegate to think of personal situation in which they need to be more assertive.

Write the outcome they would love to have.

Invite a partner to be the one you wish to be assertive with and exchange the situation so that the other person can internalise the issue.

Ask the Person to assume the role of the 'other' person

Now being assertive you can follow the three step process.

1 Tell the person you have some thing which is bothering you and you would like them to know.

A) how you feel about it and B)the facts associated with it.
Now, State the facts! (No emotion)

2 Now, reiterate the feelings you have about it. (I'm embarrised, angry, sorry, frustrated etc..)(with appropriate emotion)

3 Ask in an assertive way. So...pause... what do you think WE can do about it? and then keep QUIET.

Get in tune with how simple but asssertive this is.

Discuss the outcomes and feeling with each other and explore how it may/would work and then encourage each other to do it for real and report back with results.

To make more of a exersise of it, do it in threes with an observer.

It will work!
Kind regards

Dear Fiona
I have a resource on which is excellent for examining the effects of both passive and aggresive behaviour on an organisation. You are welcome to download it and email me if you would like me to discuss it more fully with you.
All the best
