Being assertive is the core communication skills. Being assertive means that one is able to express oneself effectively and stand up to the point of view that he holds while also respecting the beliefs and rights of others. One should always try to make regular eye contact and act confidently and make a deliberate effort to greet others and call them by their names. Also, a person should take the initiative to engage in a new behavior or learn a new activity. One should always try to understand the point of others and should not interrupt in between. Being assertive helps in boosting the confident of a person.
