Potential. We all have it and yet, not all of us reach it. This is a very common problem that many people face each day. We have big dreams, big plans and big ideas but somehow, we never achieve them and end up slumped over asking ourselves, why? If you want to change your life and reach the top, consider joining the Assertiveness and Self-Confidence Training Course from PD Training in Kuala Lumpur.
What Is Assertiveness?
For you to be able to reach the top, you need to have what every great leader in the history of humanity has had – assertiveness. You may be thinking, what is assertiveness and why is it so important to have?
Assertiveness is a fundamental personal and interpersonal skill that enables you to stand up for your personal rights and express your feelings, principles, interests and thoughts in a comfortable, sincere and appropriate manner. This skill will empower you to express yourself in a clear and sensible way in all your interactions with other people, whether the interactions are with family members, friends, colleagues, employers or clients.
Saying no is harder than most people think. Being unable to say no can put you in some very uncomfortable situations that can also threaten relationships. We always want to please others and this seems harmless enough, right? Wrong! Imagine yourself having a full schedule and at the end of that, you have a dinner date with your wife and kids. A colleague tells you to take over a project he’s working on and you accept, even though you know that you don’t have the time to spare and will mean you will miss your date with your family. Yet, you take the project even though you could have said no.
This is just one of many things that can happen when you can’t say no.
Assertiveness teaches you how to stand up for your beliefs and to be confident. When you’re not confident, you tend to stay quiet and just keep your ideas to yourself even though they may be great ideas. This makes you less useful for the goals of the company you work for and it is not a good way to catch the attention of your bosses.
On the other hand, when you are confident, you are more active during meetings and never keep your ideas to yourself, which is always good for a company. It will also grab the attention of your bosses, which could help you make your way to the top.
