There are times when you want to assert yourself, but you pull back, why? Someone might not like you? You don’t want to alienate the person? Well, confident women may think that, but they tell it like it is. And they do this by:
Listening: Most of us don’t really listen and are thinking about our own agenda. Confident women hear what’s really going on so that they can address the issue.
Being Direct: Saying what’s on their mind. Nothing is vague. People clearly know where they stand.
Being Succinct: They speak in clear, short sentences and don’t go on and on because it’s a waste of energy.
