  • Our communication falls into the following three categories:
     
    To Tutor: State each category and then ask what the delegates think of that category. Get them to define it in their own terms. Then show the explanation on the slide.
     
    Aggressive style is used by people who want to achieve their goals without any regards for the needs of other people. This is a selfish attitude which often involves manipulation. Aggressive communicators use intimidation, guilt or anger to make people do what they want.
     
    Passive style is based on conformity and compromising own values and needs in order to avoid confrontation. Passive communicators allow others to make decisions for them. This passive attitude has many drawbacks including anxiety, stress, self-denial and inhibition.
     
    Assertive style is a healthy and effective form of communication. Assertive communicators are confident in delivering their message and work hard to create a mutually satisfying environment. The high self-esteem and the ability to stand up for their rights mean that they don’t have to be manipulative to achieve their goal.
     
    Which method is the most ideal?
    Assertive
     
    Why?
    Because we get to deliver our message strongly and get results, while at the same time deliver it with consideration of the other person. The message is delivered while we are still in good terms with the person we communicated.
     
    Assertiveness is explored in more detail in the next session and you will be introduced to a series of guidelines on how to express yourself assertively. But let’s first go through an exercise which helps you to understand the differences between the three styles through specific examples.

    [PRACTICE][LOOK AT WORKBOOK: APA Model][INDIVIDUAL]
    To Tutor: Follow the instructions in the workbook and fill the table based on the case studies. Allocate about 10 minutes for this part. The aim of the exercise is to help the delegates recall examples of responses based on various styles in the APA model. The examples would then help them to understand the fundamental differences between the three types. At the end of the allocated time, bring everyone back together and ask them to share their findings. Encourage a discussion between the delegates around these examples. Get them to share their opinion on different case studies. In particular, get them to observe what others suggest for each model of and if this is different from what they thought before. Naturally, for some people the assertive communication might be the most difficult. Use the group discussion to focus on good assertive responses suggested by others. This allow you to collect examples and also create a learning environment where delegates can learn from each other. This is a preparation for the next session where you will expand more on assertive communication and provide guidelines on how to be assertive.
  • Make a to do list
    Mention your priorities
    plan weekly
    your to-do list determines your plan of action
  • These Are the tasks that are business critical; the tasks that absolutely have to be done now or there will be a problem.
     
    These tasks usually have a defined and often tight time frame i.e. returning a client call about a meeting that afternoon, or completing work that had an agreed deadline of that day
