Aggressive Submissive Assertive Communication
Transcript of Aggressive Submissive Assertive Communication
"I am worthy for just being me." The biggest piece of advice I can give someone who has an aggressive communication style is to tell yourself,
"Just because the other person has a different opinion than mine, doesn't mean they don't value my opinion. I don't have to get aggressive to be heard and understood." If you're already assertive, congrats! This means you can listen, appreciate, and respect someone else's view and opinion without feeling insecure or defensive if someone disagrees with your beliefs. The reason you're able to do this is because you value your opinions and beliefs regardless of what others say or do. Behavioural Key Pattern aggressive assertive submissive voice eye-
