|Section 1: First Steps|
Since you have enrolled for this course, it means that you yearn to get a greater insight into the power of assertive behavior. You will learn how your physical appearance, verbal and non-verbal language can boost your assertiveness. You will learn how to manage your emotions, control the conversation and exert influence on others. The quality of both your private and professional life will improve, thus allowing you to reach your goals. By acquiring the power of assertiveness, you will be able to manage your relationship with others and feel satisfaction during your interactions.
Please, post a discussion and share a story in which you lacked assertiveness. We will surely answer.
|Assertiveness is the art of interacting with people so as to convey what is on your mind without abusing them or without feeling conscious stricken by your own behavior. It is the ability to grab the attention of the recipient and hold it long enough for your message to sink in and render the required results.|
Assertiveness is considered to be the point of balance between a passive and aggressive attitude.
|Section 2: The Benefits of Assertiveness|
People who lack assertiveness are engulfed with the feeling of anxiety and tension whenever they face uncomfortable situations.
|People who have low self-esteem are liable to comply with others. This is because they do not believe in themselves. They are afraid of being criticized.|
People who have developed the skill to be assertive are able to communicate effectively with others. They do not only listen to the spoken words, but also to the manner in which they are vocalized. They pay keen attention to the non-verbal signals that accompany the verbal message and are therefore able to decrypt the real meaning behind the verbal language.
|Section 3: Body-Cure & Handshake|
Have you ever walked into a clothes shop without being properly groomed? You hair is rumpled, your clothes scruffy and your face is still suffering from a terrible hangover. No one would pay attention to you and if they did, it would be because they wanted to keep an eye on you. You approach the shop assistant, who looks down at you and treats you like a non-entity. The mere fact that you are not well-attired will make your shoulders slouch and you will walk and talk without confidence. You become the necessary evil in the shop and the workers are frustrated because you are destroying their good name. They are waiting impatiently for you to disappear.
|When you introduce yourself the first time you usually give your name and business and reach out to shake hands. The introduction phase only lasts a few seconds and you need to get it right the first time.|
|Section 4: The Verbal Message|
During your interaction with others, it is important to make them feel that you understand and respect their point of view. Understanding their approach to a problem or their way of thinking does not necessarily mean that you agree with them. However, it clearly shows them that you are tending towards mutual respect.
|In order to increase your power of assertiveness, you need to display your readiness to take responsibility for your thoughts, understanding, judgement and behavior. This is where I statements come in handy.|
|Assertiveness is the art of communicating with others in such a way that the message being sent is understood in exactly the same way as was intended. People have the tendency to conceal their real intentions or use complicated sentences to express themselves. This leads to confusion and misunderstanding, which in turn may lead to conflict in your relationship with others.|
|The essence of assertiveness is to be able to get your point across without losing control of yourself. After all, if you are a dignified person, it does not behoove you to lose your temper. You may find yourself in a situation where someone was trying to impose on you. In order to show that you are unyielding and make them understand that you really mean what you say, you need to use the broken record tactic.|

|Section 5: The Art of Silence|
People find it unbearable to listen attentively during the conversation. Their impatience overcome them and as a result, they may do two things. They may bluntly interrupt you because they are too eager to get their point across. If this fails, they may spend their listening time trying to plan what they would be saying next.
|People who possess the power of assertiveness also know that silence can be used when they do not agree with others and at the same time consider it a waste of time to get into an unnecessary discussion.|
|Section 6: Stress Management|
|Stress is a normal defensive reaction to our fast-moving world of daily challenges, demands , juggling multiple responsibilities and back-stabbing. When the brain perceives an uncomfortable, difficult or threatening situation, a series of reaction take place to boost the secretion of adrenaline. This prepares us to fight or flee.|
A student of mine was permanently stressed at work because of a co-worker from the same office. This made her less productive and more passive. She claimed that her colleague was continually criticizing her for her performance at work and was unfriendly, sarcastic and condescending.
|Everyone needs to relax and recharge their batteries. This allows us to regain our mental and physical equilibrium and repair the damage that stress has inflicted on both our body and mind. Meditation has a soothing effect on the brain, which remains for a long time after the meditation session.|
|Section 7: Nagging & Practice|
|The majority of people today use nagging as a tool to make others change their behavior. They are deeply convinced that by underlining someone’s unacceptable behavior, they would trigger them into action to make changes.|
|If you have reached this point, it means that you now have comprehensive knowledge of how to behave assertively. However, even though you understand how to assert your authority, your brain may still refrain from taking action.|
|Section 8: Life Examples|
|A few months ago, I travelled to Budapest with my family for a weekend getaway. I booked a cruise one day before the sightseeing tour along the Danube river as I knew that it would be difficult the next day to get a place on the boat.|
|After returning home from shopping, my wife realized that the packed cold cuts she had bought were stale and an unpleasant smell of rotten meat was slowly contaminating the atmosphere in the kitchen. I drove back to the shop and requested to speak to the manager.|
