#47: Being Assertive with Difficult People / Situations

Decide Your Legacy

Oct 11 2022 • 29 mins

The themes in our lives where we avoid confrontation reveal where we give our power away to others.  But to get the best possible outcome we must avoid assuming the end result and become assertive enough to enter those difficult situations.  The result can be life-giving.  On this episode we discuss:

  • What it means to give your power away
  • How being more assertive can energize your life
  • Staying committed and following through
  • Taking consistent risks
  • The DEAR MAN framework for dealing with difficult situations / people
  • Illustrations of how my clients have applied the DEAR MAN framework to their lives
  • Taking a reasonable negotiation strategy
