Comment to 'How Can I Become More Assertive?'
  • Remember the difference between being aggressive and assertive.

    People respond better to an assertive person rather than an aggressive person.

    • Aggressive people are seen as bullies who approach a problem with harsh criticism. They would say someone is doing a project "all wrong," for example.

    • An assertive person, on the other hand, approaches the same situation with concerns and ideas to improve the project.

    • Your goal should be to approach people with positive attitudes and solutions to problems. If you respect others and treat them as you want to be treated, you'll have the same courtesy returned to you.
