Being Assertive–1st blog

This session is very helpful. First, I have understood the differences between being passive, assertive and aggressive. I behave differently in different situations. But I understand the best way to deal with any situation is to be assertive. I have known that assertiveness can be displayed in several ways. I can express my assertiveness with a confident posture, in  calm voice andintonation.

I think being assertive is an effective way to protect ourselves from offence. With confidence and rationality, we can cope with different troubles. I believe it requires daily practice to be really assertive. I plan to practice by recording my efforts everyday, namely, record how I try to be assertive. it is a way to remind me to behave assertively and record my progress. 

By the way, Bev, I do not know the date for submission of final blog because I left earlier for another session at 600pm. Could you please tell me the date? Thanks!

    I don’t think there is a specific deadline – but it is meant to be a matter of weeks – I’ll check and leave a comment.

    This is a good overview and you have clearly gained insight. However, it would help you if you thought about specific changes, so consider these areas:-
    Posture- speech – intonation – strategies for dealing with intimidating or aggressive behaviour
    What is most relevant to you?
