"Being assertive means standing up for our rights and expressing what we think, feel and believe in a manner that is direct and appropriate, and does not infringe on the rights of others." – The Psychology Foundation of Canada, Staying on Top of Your Game™
Personal confidence can support your success.
Assertiveness is being self-assured and confident without being aggressive. Being confident and assertive resides in your ability to communicate in a way that enrolls listeners and connects them to the vision you create.
Great leaders are confident and great leaders are assertive.
Luckily, confidence and assertiveness are learned skills. They are skills that successful people perpetually refine, improve and strengthen. There are always opportunities to
practice and build your confidence and assertiveness.
