Assertive people are often mistakenly considered aggressive or quarrelsome. However, assertive people seek to be neither aggressive nor passive when they interact with others. Nevertheless, everybody acts in an aggressive or passive manner at one point or the other, but such behaviour when interacting with people are mostly a consequence of lack of confidence, and are thus ineffective or even inappropriate.
Express your ideas and opinions effectively
When you’re non-assertive, i.e., you are either passive or aggressive, you will probably have problems managing groups of people and getting the best out of them. It gets worse when you’re a manager because when you’re on the passive extreme, you may find it easy to create work relationships but you’ll find difficulty when passing your messages across to your team articulately and getting them to meet set targets.
On the other side of the spectrum, aggressiveness will portray you as overbearing and inconsiderate, and consequently deny you the support of others. We can train you on how to be self-confident and assertive without being domineering. Our confidence courses Birmingham will enhance your capability to effectively express your ideas and opinions to set you on the path to success in the workplace and beyond.
