Thank you and see you in the first section.
In our fast- moving world, more and more people find it difficult to admit to their fallibility. They believe it would denude them, expose their defects, and therefore make it more painful and laborious in their strive for success and recognition.
The voice is a tool for communication. If used properly, it will attract people’s attention. However, if misused, it may repel others and you will be ignored. During the listening process, people try to decode the verbal message that is being sent to their ears.
One of the side effects of our professional life is that we encounter obstacles from time to time. We may not have influence on these drawbacks, but we can decide how to react to them.
The comfort zone is a state in which you feel secure. You accept what you have and even if there are certain things you would love to change, you remain passive because changes mean collaborating with the unknown.
Being assertive does not mean that you will always succeed in getting what you want and that others will always be obliging.
When you walk into your boss’s office with your pitch, you also need to be prepared to react in the case of a negative outcome.
Managers who lack assertiveness may refrain from giving constructive feedback to their subordinates. Even though their intention is to improve the performance of their employees, they are afraid that it would annoy them, destroy the relationship and demotivate the workers.
The key to assertiveness lies in the way you are dressed for work. Before leaving your home, make sure you look neat and tidy and your attire is suitable and in accordance with your professional environment.
In order to boost your assertiveness, it is important to show people that you are open, sincere and willing to collaborate.
There is one more important body language that should be taken into consideration when trying to assert yourself during the interaction. It is the body angle.
