ESSENTIAL SKILLS FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS
Personal development that enables you to reach your goals.
Assertiveness is an essential business skill; it enables you to voice your ideas, appropriately engage others in your decisions and articulate your point of view with clarity and conviction.
There is a direct correlation between self-confidence and assertion. When we acquiesce to the beliefs of others, our lack of self-belief can kick in. We may even perceive that we don’t have a viable alternative, based on low levels of esteem we may hold about ourselves.
Assertiveness requires sound judgement. Understanding when to be accommodating by taking a more flexible approach to a situation or a colleague’s point of view and when it is appropriate to articulate a strengthening argument or an altogether different point of view is a skill that can be learnt.
