Assertive ness makes anybody a good human being. The word "assert" itself means to state " plainly, assuredly and stron gly. Never mix assertiveness with aggresiveness. An assertive person should possess the following

1.Awareness: He should be able to "REVEAL HIMSELF". Being open increases the respect for the person. Makes him felt warm,closer to the heart.

2.Authenticity: Take responsibility for the words he speaks and actions he perfroms.

3.Appropriate: He should be able to communicate with people of all levels with equal ease, openess, honest and APPROPRIATE.

4.Spontaneity:He should be spontaneous(SPONTEneity means speaking the right words at the right time and to the right people.

5.Autonomy:He should believe in himself and should hve self respect.

6.Achievement: He should have an active orientation towards life and should be able to make things happen. Once a person develops the art of being cvery assertive he has to develop the above characteristics otherwise you always sound aggressive but never assertive.

This is what makes a housewife a leader housewife and a proprietor a leader. THere is hardly a scope for people to say "no" or withdraw from an assertive person as he is holding the magic of assertiveness,
