Why is it important to learn to be assertive?
It is important because in every relationship you will have to have difficult conversations about challenging topics and you want to be able to handle them confidently and, in a way, that you can feel proud of. Plus, you don’t want to make the situation worse by the way you discuss it or damage a relationship even further by saying something in ways that escalates the situation. Do you have trouble telling others (employees, bosses, partners, colleagues, friends, etc.) when you didn’t like something or saying no to things you don’t want to do. Or, do you often hurt people by being too aggressive? I think most individuals can use a little help in this area of their lives. Assertiveness can bring more peace and harmony to your relationships and bring you even closer to other people when done effectively. It can increase happiness by helping to solve problems and anything that doesn’t make you happy. We have helped so many clients excel in creating their own healthy boundaries, which has made them much more effective and happy at work and closer to those they love. Learn how to stand up for yourself and hold your ground while improving rather than worsening the things around you. Tap into this aspect of the power that you have to live life how you want to live it – it is never too late to learn proven techniques for communicating assertively (not passively and not aggressively) with confidence!
Non-Assertive Communication Styles Include:
This way of communicating your feelings and desires is harsh and hurtful. It can often cause anxiety, hurt, anger, and defensiveness in others as it does not take the feelings of others into account.
This is when you do not communicate at all. You hold your feelings in, you don’t say no to things you don’t want to do,
You do things you don’t want to do and often feel resentful which often leads to aggressiveness or passive aggressive behaviour.
Passive-aggressiveness is when you don’t directly tell someone something bothered you but you display aggressive behaviours that people have trouble putting their finger on. You might show up late or burn dinner for example. You are angry at someone and you show it with implicit behaviours.
