Throughout our lives we may find ourselves in situations where we must confort other people´s thoughts, interests, and values – in essence, their position- not only in our workplaces but also in our daily lives.

Assertiveness is a communication style which lets other people know how we think, and which expresses our desires, values, principles, rights, iterests, etc, without hurting or devaluing others.

Would you like to see an example?

This way of communicating enables us to confront others and debate with them, which simply means that we are ble to value ourselves and put forward our ideas in respectful, frank, honest, and open manner. At the same time, we manage to accurately convery our own position while protecting ourselves from the harm which others may try to inflict on us, given that we forensee any offence or aggression, and, thus leave aside the possibiliy of tension and anxiety arising – the classic scenario.
