Virtual Training – The School Board of Brevard County
With Jill Molli
Assertiveness is the skill that emerges from the Power of Attention and teachers others how to treat us. It lets us set boundaries on what behaviors we consider appropriate, safe and permissible. It empowers us to say "no" to believing the false messages on our CD-Rom, "no" to behaviors that do not support our goals, and "no" to others. Assertiveness allows us to express our needs, wants and desires constructively, without devaluing the other person's needs wants and desires. It is the medium through which we teach respect.
