Straine Practice Tip — Assertiveness

Published on May 15, 2014

WHY DO I SAY YES WHEN I REALLY MEAN NO?
OR HOW THE PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE PERSON REALLY RUNS THE SHOW!

Nonassertive behavior is indirect, self-denying, emotionally dishonest, and inhibited.
The nonassertive person generally feels picked on, hurt, and anxious,
with a well of undefined anger lurking below the surface.
Non-assertiveness is seen as a means to avoid conflict or gain popularity.
The passive, non-assertive person is by no means powerless, though!
Indirect aggression may take the form of chronic lateness,
procrastination, or failure to implement policy.

ELIMINATE FRUSTRATION & ENJOY YOUR CAREER
BY MASTERING ASSERTIVE COMMUNICATION!
Describe the facts of the situation Specify what you would like to happen
Express your feelings about the situation State the likely consequences

WHAT EXACTLY IS ASSERTIVENESS?
Assertiveness is the socially acceptable expression of personal rights and feelings.
It is the emotional freedom to show one’s feelings in a frank and open manner,
without hinting around, playing hurt, harboring anger or resentment.
It is not a license to be impolite, crude, or disrespectful to another person,
nor is it aggression toward another person.

ASSERTIVENESS IS THE ABILITY TO ACHIEVE ONE’S BASIC RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS AS A HUMAN BEING
WITHOUT INFRINGING ON ANOTHER PERSON’S RIGHTS.
