How To Assert Yourself

Be Relaxed And Calm. If You Are Uncomfortable Or Confused, Let The Other Person Know.

Next » « Previous


Think of the times you've heard someone speak in public who starts by stating how nervous they are. It's a simple mechanism to help release anxiety, to let the listener know you're having difficulty, and to request patience.

If the other person doesn't have the necessary time, find out when the two of you can speak again. Or perhaps the person has someone else in his or her office who can explain things more easily to non-experts such as you.

If you're asked to make a decision, and are still confused, ask how much time you have to make a decision. It's seldom required that a decision be made on the spot. It's perfectly acceptable to say something like: I wish to think about what we've said."  Then, take adequate time to educate yourself on the issues.  A proper understanding of the issues, will help you be assertive.  From knowledge comes strength.
