Perspective on: Assertiveness

Unfortunately, most women confuse “being assertive” with “being aggressive.”  Assertive women express themselves without becoming defensive. Assertive women share their opinions without belittling those of others. Assertive women command respect.

Aggressive women, on the other hand, can be seen as defensive, bullying and disrespectful of others.

I think the difference is clear. Do you?

    I agree! Unfortunately though, a lot of times assertive women are called aggressive and asked to shrink their leadership. That’s disappointing.
