In this short, 30-minute guide I will tackle the topic of assertiveness.
Many people think that assertiveness is only linked to saying NO and therefore they negate everything.
The truth is that assertiveness is actually the ability to behave and communicate with others in a strong and confident way.
Assertive individuals are able to capture people’s attention and convey their message in a convincing manner.
They create harmony during their interaction with others. And this is exactly what I will teach you to do in this course.
Remember, the course is completely free and there is no risk involved, so let's get started!
The majority of people believe that assertiveness is inextricably linked to saying No, so they negate everything. I would modify this by stating that assertiveness is the ability to behave and communicate with others in a strong and confident way.
Assertive communication is the competence to deliver messages that clearly reveal your intentions, without destroying the protocol of etiquette.
The eyes can be used as a powerful tool to define your assertiveness. When you maintain eye contact with others during the conversation, you are telling them that you are sincere and interested in what they have to say.
The comfort zone is a psychological state in which you feel comfortable because your level of stress and anxiety is low and you know what to expect.
Whenever we encounter difficult, uncomfortable or dangerous situations, a sequence of reactions will take place, which leads to the release of specific hormones.
Your reaction should be based on your knowledge of criticism.
