When a conversation becomes heated, can you respond warmly? When giving your opinion, can you express yourself without anxiety?
Assertiveness is our ability to convey thoughts and feelings in ways that can be clearly heard; whilst maintaining our personal integrity, as well as respect for others.
A compassionate person develops an eye for spotting the qualities that
make each person special. Even when others are at their lowest ebb, it
is possible to help them restore their self-belief by keeping a firm,
clear vision of their goodness and specialties. Taking a gently
encouraging approach, I must never give up on anyone.
Message for the day
To use one value with commitment is to guarantee the use of all values.
