During the course of your professional career how many leaders have you come across that could be best described as a bully? How many were absolute pushovers? The fact is, being either a bully or a pushover doesn’t make for a good leader. Leaders with these characteristics don’t have a team that supports them. Instead, the most effective leaders possess assertiveness to motivate and manage their team while handling crises efficiently. But, what exactly is assertiveness and when do you use it with your team? To better understand assertiveness we first need to quickly review the four distinct communication patterns that we encounter daily:
Passive: These are the individuals who avoid conflict, get taken advantage of, and apologize often.
Aggressive: Many people view aggressive individuals as a self-righteous bully who is quick to criticize others and be dismissive of other's opinions.
Passive-Aggressive: Despite wanting to avoid confrontation, passive-aggressive people can be manipulative and they play games with others to extort power.

• I usually get after my workout with a set workout that I create the day before at the same time everyday (biggest split between my clients.) Today was one of those hectic days (this whole week actually) where I had to just get to it with nothing planned and at a different time than usual. . . • Sometimes a small change in your routine can cause for a big Difference. Switch it up. Do something different. 💪🏽 . . #mensphysique#classicphysique#bodybuilding
