Question and answer
Q: Explain why it is important to be responsive, honest, and/or assertive in all areas of your life?
A: very day all over the world countless great ideas die before they could benefit the organizations in a big way simply because often people carrying them lack the assertiveness to get them the deserved attention of those who matter. [ Often such ideas, even if raised, are bull-dozed by aggressive superiors or colleagues for egoistic reasons. There are executives who find it easier to carry out
the tasks of their juniors because that is what they find easier than to make their workforce work instead. Obviously apart from sending wrong signals and vitiating the atmosphere, this also affects their efficiency and results in unnecessary drain on the paid man hours. Employees get away with sub standard work or no work at all, setting wrong precedents in the process. Unnecessary exploitation of the good workforce and their resulting demoralization makes it difficult for an organization to perform satisfactorily. The work culture of organizations can be improved dramatically if only we could train our workforce in assertive-responsive skills. Every organization can thrive and perform well if it can track the unnecessary fluff of goody-goody attitude and replace with more responsible, honest and straightforward communication. And this demands proper training of any workforce in assertive-responsive skills. Some of the advantages of inculcating assertiveness and responsiveness skills are: Less stress and hence better health More confidence Good at dealing with others Better members of a team Things get done effectively and efficiently Command more respect In order to inculcate these two extremely important qualities a thorough revamping of our mental software is required. Just knowing what do they mean and understanding them intellectually does not serve much purpose. We need to discover our self-defeating beliefs, thoughts, emotions, tendencies and replace them with their empowering counterparts. With very effective role playing exercises, the workshop accomplishes this very precisely. ]
