Turns out that no amount of leadership skills can make up for lack of assertiveness. For example, research shows that leaders who were rated high (in the 75th percentile) as having good judgment but lower on assertiveness had only a 4.2% chance of being highly rated as an effective leader. Wow, only 4.2% – looks like it’s time to rethink what being assertive means for being a great leader.
Join us in today’s podcast where we explore how to become an assertive and self-confident leader that others believe in and follow.
