Positive Assertiveness: A Posture for Inclusive Leadership
Positive Assertiveness is both a communication style and behavior pattern that is fully expressive without being either dominant or passive. According to the tenets of Transactional Analysis, disruptive and unproductive behaviors arise from non-assertive behaviors. On the other hand, organizations that foster positive assertiveness benefit from increased agility, better decision making, higher job mobility and job satisfaction and improved flow of critical information. The personal benefits of Positive Assertiveness include a greater sense of well-being, decreased stress and more focused self-development.
