Please, post a discussion and share a story in which you lacked assertiveness. We will surely answer.
Assertiveness is considered to be the point of balance between a passive and aggressive attitude.
People who lack assertiveness are engulfed with the feeling of anxiety and tension whenever they face uncomfortable situations.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
