“When you stand up for yourself at work, it’s important to think about how your actions will be perceived by others,” Monica explains in the post. “I’ve found it’s a balancing act between having confidence in your abilities and not being too aggressive.”
You can speak up and advocate for yourself without the need to trample over others. It’s important to strike that delicate balance between asserting yourself and remembering to respect other people around you.
“If you have a confrontation with a coworker and feel like you’ve been disrespected, it’s important to remain respectful towards the other person while standing your ground. When backed into a corner, it’s easy to allow your emotions to dominate the situation. I suggest bringing in an objective third party to help facilitate the conversation and resolve conflict.”
