    Section 1: Assertive Communication - How to get what you want!

    Let Cara introduce you to assertive communication, being assertive is not pushing yourself on people but rather having the ability to properly communicate your opinions and desires.

    Section 2: The Six Secrets of Assertive Communication

    The definition of Assertive depends on the person you talk to. Some see it in a positive light. Some know they need it. While others misinterpret it as an aggressive way of life. If everyone in the whole world could get on the same definition of Assertiveness it could be believed as the beginning of peace.


    It's simple really….Assertiveness has a certain LOOK! And this “look” must be practiced and understood. Did you know you might have credibility robbing gestures and mannerisms?


    It's inevitable really…Tough conversations are going to be a part of our lives forever. Dealing with the threatening situation at hand is unavoidable. Sometimes a formula is all you need to move forward in the direction of your desires.


    It's understandable really…Emotions play a vital part in communication. Emotions help connect us together. Recognize the emotion in yourself and the other person. Emotional control is a skill that can be learned and that can increase your overall self-control in difficult situations.


    Communication is not as simple as it seems. It's your responsibility to make sure your communication is clear and precise. Understanding your role is key.


    Being Courteous doesn't mean you have to back down. Customization within communication is the essence of taking the others person's view into consideration. You –not others- are responsible for understanding where another person might be coming from. Believing that people see the world differently then you is important. You can't get stuck in thinking that your angle is the only consideration. Adjust accordingly and get your desired results.

    Section 3: Final Thoughts

    Customization within communication is the essence of being Assertive. The six secrets of Assertiveness will take you to your goal of who you want to be.
