What Being Assertive Means

Being assertive means that we consider the safety, boundaries, and needs of all: ours and other people. Assertiveness is a mindful behavior that encompasses the principles of responsibility, nonjudgment, and compassion.

As we listen empathetically to the needs of others and cultivate mutual dialogue and cooperation, we learn to act from a sense of strength, justice, care, and authenticity while appreciating these same qualities in others. We are speaking and acting in a way that integrates decisiveness and respect.
