From birth to the inevitable, we are always learning. Improving communication is a great way to assist with workplace relationships.
We all know there is a fine line between being assertive and aggressive and if you get it right, it can assist in both the workplace and in your personal life.
Consider the following tips on the path to becoming assertive:
- Assertive people seek to win – win scenarios which give everyone the desired outcomes. They are able to contribute their desires and beliefs and understand their solution may not be the one that is chosen.
- You need to ensure everyone’s contributions are valued and instead of criticising, you might like to add to their ideas and take them to the next level.
