Tips to Improve Your Assertiveness

Know your boundaries and stand up for yourself

Whenever you are in a management or leadership role you need to be able to decide when and how to assert your authority. 

Here are some tips to improve your assertiveness:

Know your rights: Educate yourself about your rights and boundaries, and be clear about what you are and are not willing to accept.

Use "I" statements: When communicating your needs or boundaries, use "I" statements to express your feelings and needs. For example, "I feel disrespected when you speak to me in that tone" instead of "You are always disrespectful to me."

Practise saying no: It is okay to turn down requests or invitations if they do not align with your goals or values.

Stand up for yourself: Don't be afraid to speak up if someone is treating you unfairly or disrespecting your boundaries.

Seek support: Surround yourself with supportive people who respect your boundaries and encourage you to assert yourself.

Practise assertive body language: Use confident body language, such as maintaining eye contact and speaking clearly and calmly, to communicate your assertiveness.

Seek professional help: If you are struggling with assertiveness or have difficulty standing up for yourself, consider seeking the help of a therapist or coach.
