Assertiveness as a philosophy and technique

We can all benefit from adopting an assertive style in interactions with others, it is a communication philosophy and technique. It involves interacting with others in a confident and persistent manner, particularly when there is an element of conflict present.

There are no right or wrong answers when it comes to how you assert yourself but by increasing self-awareness you can increase your effectiveness in difficult situations.
