Most of us have had the experience of coming away from an encounter thinking ‘I wish I’d said so-and-so’, or ‘I wish I’d thought of that earlier’. But assertiveness skills are not instinctive; they have to be learned.
For example, do you hear yourself saying ‘I’m sorry if I’m taking up your valuable time, but…’, or something similar when approaching someone? This is a gentle way of starting a conversation, but can make you sound nervous. Use ‘Excuse me…’ instead. Even better, don’t rephrase, just omit it altogether – by doing so, you’ve already begun to assume a more assertive manner.
Here’s a wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat. Have a great weekend!
