Assertiveness Skills

Rating:
4.5/5
(4.7 based on 44 reviews)

Assertive people confidently express their own views and appreciate the views of others. They strive to make decisions based upon a ‘win-win’ outcome and usually achieve their own desired outcome.

Assertive people have great self-awareness and can accept factual based criticism. Where necessary, they feel confident saying “no” to people and can provide alternatives to resolve discrepancies.
