This article from the Guardian about being assertive v being aggressive is interesting. http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2009/aug/03/how-to-be-assertive I think StokeyMark has hit on something - most of us are unaware of (or unwilling to admit) our behaviour is unhelpful to others, whether that’s ’shy’, ‘assertive’ or ‘aggressive’… Definitions depend on your personal point of view - what’s ‘aggressive’ for one person can just be ‘assertive’ to someone else. Also depends on the type and culture of the organisation. Unfortunately none of us sees ourselves as others see us - it’s always someone else who’s behaving badly, right?
