      Thanks for your comments and while I agree with much of what you’d say about the importance of assertiveness and asking for what you need, I’d like to challenge you on a couple of points. First, I don’t advise telling nurses or anyone else how they should feel, i.e. “…shouldn’t feel afraid to speak up”. It is oppressive language and counterproductive to building assertiveness. Second, the addition of “without offending someone of higher dominance” to the definition of assertiveness is a dangerous one because it condones toxic behaviors like not listening or not creating psychologically safe environments. Both are critical leadership action steps that will promote healthy workplaces and patient safety. Assertiveness is incredibly complex and involves individual and organizational behaviors. In this 30 min (and free) webinar I talk more about it!

  3. Beth, thank you for the lovely mention of my podcast, nurse career coaching, and book.

    You are a shining example of a nurse who offering other nurses powerful communication tools for creating healthy, team-oriented, collaborative workplaces.

    Thanks for the gifts you continue to give to the nursing community!
