Assertiveness isn't a way to control someone else or a situation. It doesn’t use force to push back against someone else’s behaviour or actions.
We can’t balance anything out by pushing back against an extreme.
Assertiveness is a skill for the middle ground between being passive and aggressive, placating and punishing, tempered by compassion to rise above disempowering conversations, situations and group dynamics.
Being aware of the outcomes one wants to achieve with others also makes assertive communication a way of expressing accountability.
Strategies to inspire behaviour change and accountability by being assertive are found in my new book - The Little Book of Assertiveness: https://drnathaliemartinek.com/book
"The message of “Get Rich Slow” is clear: Sacrifice your today, your dreams, and your life for a plan that pays dividends after most of your life has evaporated. Let me be blunt: If your road to wealth devours most of your active adult life and is not guaranteed, that road sucks. A “road to wealth” codependent on Wall Street and anchored by time with your life wagered as the gamble is a rotten alley." M.J DeMarco - The Millionaire Fastlane
As I reflect on these 20 years of serving on staff @inlandhills the word that comes to mind is gratitude.🙏
I’m so grateful for the leaders I’ve had along the way who saw something in me that I didn’t at the time and still took a chance and invested in me.
I’m grateful for the memories and relationships that I will carry for a lifetime.
I’m grateful for a place that has aloud me to grow into the man God has called me to be.
I’m grateful for a staff who is the most talented and humble group of people I have ever know.
As I walk into the next adventure, I am filled with excitement, contentment, gratitude, and nervousness all wrapped in one emotion.
Thank you IHC staff for everything. You mean more to me than you’ll ever know.
See you Sunday!

“If we want people to fully show up, to bring their whole selves including their unarmored, whole hearts—so that we can innovate, solve problems, and serve people—we have to be vigilant about creating a culture in which people feel safe, seen, heard, and respected.” #BreneBrown#leadspirations#quotes#leadership

"I was at a crossroads about a decade ago regarding my career path. I approached the situation per my earlier statements and took a bold step to move from an HR discipline to Marketing (where I didn’t have much experience). The move was either going to make or break me." Stella Ringer. The Coca-Cola Company. The Catalysts
"Kuburan adalah kepastian kita semua. Tak mungkan lepas dari realitas kehadirannya. Menolak atau menerima tak akan membuatmu lebih cepat atau melambat dari jatah memasukinya. Adalah sebuah kenaifan jika terus menanamkan prinsip bahwa hidup setelah mati bersifat nisbi. Ironis, sebab tak selalu yang tak terindera pasti tak ada.
Aku tidak bicara soal hantu dengan beragam kategori dan namanya. Tapi tentang manfaat atau kerugian yang dimunculkan bahkan setelah jasad dikubur di kedalaman tanah. Seorang Gus Dur meski sudah meninggal malah membawa banyak untung finansial maupun spiritual bagi warga-warga di sekitar makam, bahkan termasuk lingkaran terluar sekalipun. Pun ada orang sakti yang ketika kuburannya justru dijadikan perantaraan syirik bagi pengikut dan pengagumnya. Realitas semacam ini ada, sesuatu yang dulunya kukira hanya isapan jempol belaka.
Tentu jalan-jalan di tengah makam bukanlah hal asing bagi para penggiat pramuka, PMR, atau organisasi apapun. Jurit malam sedari SMA memang tinggalkan jejak memori tersendiri, entah adrenalin rush atau sekadar uji nyali. Secara hormonal dan psikologis sangat wajar untuk usia belasan tahun. Tapi ketika usiaku memasuki kepala tiga tahun ini, jalan-jalan ke makam lebih dari sekadar itu.

What are your thoughts on this?👉🏼👉🏼 Want to learn a new skill or a topic about an industry? You no longer need to go to a University to finish a whole course for it.
A trend that has continuously made its way (and has established an entirely new industry on its own), is blended learning. A form of learning that can be bite-sized or long using several resources and medium, dictated by our own choices of content and dedicated time. ⚡What do you want to learn this new dedade?
If you are going to make the impact that you are destined to make, you cannot limit yourself to only share your gift with your circle. Share it with the world because that is what is going to position you not only to get the opportunities that are divinely yours but to provide you a foundation that benefits others and galvanizes positive change.
Our gifts and talents are not the same but what's important is for you to recognize yours, share it. There are people who you are supposed to impact in a positive way. By doing what you can do, others can use it as motivation to act upon what they know within themselves they can do.
POSITIVELY SHAPING THE FUTURE
All of these lessons have come into play at different points in my life. Most recently lead with actions, not words has been very prevalent in my life.
What’s the greatest lesson you’ve learned? Comment it below.
Our sense of fear is directly tied to our great ancestors’ survival. That fear helped us avoid that saber-toothed tiger, but today we don’t face such enemies.
I would argue only 1% of the time our fear is serving its purpose of actually protecting us. Once in awhile we might get a gut feeling about someone or something being bad news so the smart choice is to distance ourself from the situation.
The other 99% of the time our fear is only holding us back from stepping into our full power and our full potential.
The reason we worry so much about what others think about us and are afraid of public embarrassment is because our survival since the dawn of humanity has revolved around growing communities.
It’s impossible to hunt and kill that saber-toothed tiger alone, but with a team you might actually walk away alive and with dinner in hand.
Today, having the freedom to express yourself and pave your own path is everything. Being different is cool and when you pace your own path, along your journey you’ll meet others like you and you can begin to create a new community.
So don’t ever let your fears stop you from being you. The quicker you confront those fears, the quicker you will achieve your dreams! #YouCanHaveSuccess
