Although we might all use all three of these main communication styles on occasion, it's our primary communication habits that make or break or relationships. Passive communicators risk going through their careers stuck in unfulfilling roles and building up resentment because they aren't getting their needs met. Aggressive communicators are likely getting their needs met, but they put their organizations at risk and their relationships might not be as meaningful as they could be.
Assertive communication is direct and honest. This style demonstrates respectful for self and others. Assertive communicators can positively influence individuals and organizations.

My focus is training supervisors and managers, or front line employees who have the goal to promote to leadership some day. The time to start behaving like a leader is before you fill a leadership position. The information, tools, and resources shared in this podcast are designed to help you reach your highest potential in your career. I taught college level Business Communication and Employee Readiness courses for 15 years. Employees and students tell me my courses change their lives for the better, and my evaluations consistently rate me as an engaged and motivational speaker. I decided to produce a podcast in the effort to support a broader audience of people in higher levels of job satisfaction and productivity, as well as encourage people to find jobs for which they are a good fit.

If you know anyone getting ready to start college, or even at a crossroads in life trying to put things back together in a positive way, I encourage you to give them my book, From Average Student to Academic Rock Star! This is my foundational college orientation available on Amazon in paperback. Set up like a workbook with action steps, this information has helped thousands of people get their goals on track. Some readers are purchasing it as a gift, and then deciding to keep it for themselves because of the life lessons addressed in the book. Check it out on Amazon!
