How To Be More Assertive
A big part of the work that I do with my clients is about communication, and something that often comes up in our conversations is how to be more assertive.
The reason why assertiveness is not always as easy as it sounds is that there are situations that activate internal triggers in us. They let our emotions prevail and push us into an aggressive or passive approach.
An aggressive approach can create tension and damage relationships. A passive approach can lead to low self-esteem and a loss of respect from others. Needless to say, neither an aggressive nor a passive approach are signs of a good leadership communication.
In this video, I explain what assertiveness means and give you 5 ways to be more assertive in your communication with others.
