- How could you diffuse a potentially explosive situation, discourage disrespect and encourage respect, lay down boundaries, rebuild a broken relationship or encourage positive communication using assertiveness?
- Think of a situation where you were not assertive and did not achieve win-win. Perhaps the outcome was lose-win or lose-lose. How could you have been more assertive to achieve a positive outcome for all concerned?
