Assertive behaviour enables us to act in our best interests and exercise personal rights without violating the rights of others. Assertive people say and think without apologising or dominating. Assertive people are willing to find mutually satisfactory solutions to interpersonal problems and conflict – which means they are usually able to send the right signals and get the right responses.
Many people often have difficulty saying “no” or are too outspoken and aggressive. Either way doesn’t result in a job well-done or would probably result in damaged relationships. Having said that, there are times when it may be appropriate to be passive or aggressive. So how do you achieve the balance?
