Learning how to own your worth as a leader is an essential step in becoming an effective and assertive leader who guides their team to success.

Donna Schilder, MCC, Executive Coach, explains how she became more assertive as a leader in this interview with Sherri Cannon, PCC, Executive Coach.

With help from a Leadership Coach, passive leaders can become more assertive and lead their teams more effectively.

This video is the second of two parts explaining the Assertiveness Continuum and how knowledge of it can help leaders be more assertive.

The Assertiveness Continuum is passive (left), assertive (middle) & aggressive (right). Effective Leaders strive to operate mostly in the Assertive range.

Leaders can identify ways to increase their Assertiveness by taking assessments and debriefing them with their Leadership Coach.

When you negotiate a job offer, remember that everything is negotiable: job duties, salary, bonuses, signing bonus, benefits, stock options & perks.
