Now, what exactly is assertiveness?

Communicating assertively at the workplace means to confidently voice your opinions, while remaining respectful. It means to not shy away from expressing desires, suggestions or complaints and stating them clearly to your colleagues. While doing so, you remain focused on the problem, not on the recipient.

What assertiveness is not

Being assertive does not mean that you can say whatever comes to mind in any context and under any form. There’s a fine line between being assertive and being aggressive. There is always a time and place for certain conversations and being assertive means being aware of your rights, as well as of other people’s rights. This being said, the purpose of displaying assertiveness is not to win a heated argument, but to firmly present your beliefs and stand by your principles, without being offensive or rude.

Benefits of Being Assertive

Employees who are assertive have a great deal to earn from their interactions with colleagues because they are able to get their message across without being misunderstood or without feeling pressured into doing something that doesn’t align with their values or principles. They also know their worth and are able to speak up and stand up for themselves.


Building stronger relationships at work

By clearly stating your expectation, needs, opinions and complaints people know how to treat you and they know exactly what you want from them. Such an attitude is met with respect and professionalism.

Avoiding personal conflicts

Part of communicating assertively means to focus on the problem, not on the person, so this way you address issues, without offending people.

Higher self-confidence

If you exercise constantly stating your opinion, it’ll boost your self-confidence and reinforce the idea that your vision matters and is worth being taken into account.

Higher self-esteem

If you make a point out of expressing your thoughts and see actual results of how your idea has positively impacted the business or the team, it will reinforce your self-appreciation.

Reduced anxiety and stress

If you shy away from difficult conversations or from voicing your opinions, you’ll end up doing things that don’t align with your values or that are unfair to you and this induces anxiety. You need to confidently establish boundaries and say “No” when you have to, because, otherwise you might be overworked, overcontrolled or poorly managed.

Are you assertive or not?

Here’s an exercise to determine whether you’re already an assertive communicator or not.  If you answer “Yes” to most or all of these questions, then we’ll have to work together to build up your assertive attitude.

Do you find yourself answering “Yes” when you’d really want to say “No”?

Do you often find yourself working after hours? 

Were you ever wrongly accused of something and didn’t say anything to defend yourself?

Does your workload often consist of many urgent tasks with tight deadlines?

Do you find yourself struggling to have a work-life balance?

Are you sometimes reluctant to voice your opinion because you’re afraid it might not be approved by others?
