E023 Defining Assertiveness: What it Is and What it Isn’t
Welcome to episode Twenty-Three where we clarify the concept of assertiveness and talk about what It is not.
In this episode we explore the origins of losing our “voice” in relationships and in our lives, by going back to the formative years where unhealthy behavior was modeled for us and instilled in us. We delve into the origins of how early coping mechanisms of aggressive or passive-aggressive behavior hurt us – and those we love.
- Take a quick assessment of how you may struggle to be assertive.
- Clarify how early distorted beliefs can make us quiet or swallow our voice.
- Define how passive-aggressive behavior is an early coping skill in unhealthy families.
The only healthy communication style is assertive communication. – Jim Rohn
