Summary Publisher description: Being an assertive person is more than adopting a communication “style”, or taking on a manner or pose in order to achieve a desired result. Assertiveness is one part of the total person and is an attitude towards yourself and other people and includes accepting total responsibility for your actions. Assertiveness is therefore a reflection of the person. So it is important that we, as individuals understand the options open to us in communication with others and which of the more common styles achieve the best results. This video clearly illustrated each of the three main behaviour styles in action and demonstrates how each causes a certain response which will be either positive or negative. Often it is only by watching these examples that people will understand their own behaviour style and the impact they are having on others within your organisation. Training in communication styles is a must for everyone in your organisation and may well have an enormous impact on overall productivity and in improving the working environment
