This brings us to the situational leadership styles we learned: neither good nor bad, they are functional or dysfunctional in relation to the situation, context and person. When you freely express, you can make him understand what the other wants to convey in the most effective. b) The communication is effective, clear and with good feedback. c) assertive person has clear goals. Know where they go and what they want to achieve. This is called consistency.
It is aligned with what you want, and implemented the necessary resources to establish a clear policy line toward those goals. d) You know you can not always win, but the importance lies in the effort to reach their goals. If not, take the time to rethink the way and run again for new strategies to follow. Not discouraged by failure, reformulated, new meaning and move on. e) Establish a communication with a delicate style of discourse, careful, without offending the interlocutor.
