Tips for communicating assertively

  • Make sure your body reflects confidence: stand up straight, look people in the eye, and relax.
  • Use a firm, but pleasant, tone.
  • Don’t assume you know what the other person’s motives are, especially if you think they’re negative.
  • When in a discussion, don’t forget to listen and ask questions! It’s important to understand the other person’s point of view as well.
  • Try to think win-win: see if you can find a compromise or a way for you both to get your needs met.
