  1. Staying silent is like a slow growing cancer to the soul and a trait of a true coward. There is nothing intelligent about not standing up for yourself. You may not win every battle. However, everyone will at least know what you stood for

  2. Years ago, when I was in management, we had to go through assertive training. Many people think that being assertive is ‘cramming your opinion down someone’s throat’. It isn’t. An assertive person is non-aggressive but confident and willing to explain clearly how they are feeling. Someone who calmly says, “What you said hurt my feelings and this is why…” is being assertive. A good manager is usually assertive.
