Assertive communication is a critical skill for emerging leaders, new managers, and people who are more introverted in social situations.
When you know how to communicate assertively, you can say “no” without feeling guilty, set boundaries to protect your time, priorities and goals, articulate requests clearly and confidently, and deal with awkward situations with ease.
Imagine being able to lift the frustration, stress and anxiety you normally feel when you have to stand up for yourself. Imagine life without people walking over you because they respect the boundaries you have set. Imagine people looking at you as a strong, confident person.
All of this is possible and learning how to communicate assertively will help you achieve it.
