Mutual respect is fundamental to the assertive communication approach. You can communicate more confidently when you stand up for yourself while respecting the right of others to do the same. Being assertive is a sign of respect for yourself when you are willing to defend your rights and interests and express your opinions and feelings. It also indicates your willingness to work together to create one so that we can find an acceptable solution.

Aggression and assertiveness are sometimes confused. Assertiveness promotes mutual respect and leads to cooperation, acceptance and trust. Promoting self-interest at the expense of others through aggressive behavior breeds hatred, mistrust, contempt, and disability.

If you feel confident, you can:

• Act in your own best interest. This includes denying the request.

• Stand up for yourself by expressing your rights, interests, thoughts, feelings and personal boundaries.

• Respect others by considering their needs and rights, including the right to refuse requests

• Expect trust and equality in relationships. Negotiate towards an amicable conclusion.

• Both vocalization and nonverbal behavior constitute assertive communication. The following advice can help with aggressive communication. • Display positive and confident body language. Maintain an upright, relaxed, open posture, smile, and use light movements.

• Communicate a confident and clear message. Be consistent, be specific, be open-minded, be positive, and use “I” statements.

• You can refuse. If you want to use the word “no” to explain, so be it. Don’t apologize or justify.

• Speak in a firm, pleasant, easy to hear, and clear voice.

• Describe your problem and the goals you want to achieve.

• Stay focused and don’t stray off topic or delegate to others. • Accept the other person’s feelings and problems.

• Reiterate or summarize the other party’s views.

You can learn to communicate with confidence. The more you do it, the easier it gets and the better you get at it.
