Assertiveness

 Assertiveness is a skill for effective communication and negotiation while respecting the thoughts and feelings of others. Assertive people are clear about their wants, needs, and boundaries to others and there remains no question to where they stand. Being assertive means being able to stand up for what is right, and to say no to something that does not pleases in a confident, calm, and respectful way which is neither too aggressive nor passive. It is an important personal and interpersonal skill as in all our interactions being assertive helps us to express ourselves in a clear, open, and reasonable way, without undermining our own or other’s rights.

An aggressive communication can ruin relationships for us because no one likes to be in the company of a person who constantly judges, argues, disagrees, and does not allow others to share their opinion. While a passive communication may lead to us feeling misunderstood or unheard and we may also feel that no one truly listens to us or value our input. However an assertive communication is way to present our thoughts and beliefs in a clear manner. Assertiveness is seen as a balance between aggressive and passive types of personalities.

Assertive behaviour includes –

  • Being open in expressing wishes and encouraging others to do the same
  • Listening to the views of others and responding appropriately, whether in agreement with those views or not
  • Accepting responsibilities and being able to delegate to others
  • Regularly expressing appreciation of others for what they have done or are doing
  • Being able to admit to mistakes and apologise
  • Maintaining self control
  • Behaving as an equal to others

BENEFITS OF BEING ASSERTIVE

  • Assertive people feel empowered to do whatever it takes to find the best solutions for their problems that they face.
  • They get things done by treating people with fairness and respect and are treated by others in the same way.
  • They are self assured and don’t feel threatened or upset when things don’t go as planned or as expected.
  • They are able to recognize the value of their opponent’s position and can quickly find common ground with them.
  • They are able to express themselves in a better and calm way which makes the communication effective.
  • They are confident enough to show that they are brave enough to stand up for what the resonate with as well as are in control of what they say.
  • Trust is an important part for any communication to take place and being an assertive person helps to you get their easily.

Doctrine of Notional Extension under the Workmen Compensation Act, 1923

  There is no problem in detecting that the accident occurred in the course of employment when a workman is injured in the working place and in the working hour and doing his duty. The problem arises when these elements do not coincide together. But a workmen if injured just near the work premises or just before joining the work or in the way to work problem arises. To address this kind of problem and giving some kind of relief to the workmen the theory of notional extension evolved. “As a rule, the employment of a workman does not commence until he has reached the place of employment and does not continue when he has left the place of employment, the journey to and from the place of employment being excluded. It is now well-settled, however, that this is subject to the theory of notional extension of the employer’s premises so as to include an area which the workman passes and repasses in going to and in leaving the actual place of work. There may be some reasonable extension in bot

Peace - A Way Of Life

To be peaceful is the sign of a conqueror.  We have often heard people saying 'follow the path of peace and you will be happy', 'preach peace' and many other phrases emphasising on a way of living- Peace. But what is it really about?  With reference of the holy Bible, peace is defined with notions like  totality or completeness, success, fulfillment, wholeness, harmony, security and well being.  The definition of peace changes with mindsets of people.

To be able to look back at your life and accept all its darks and jewels is what peace feels like. Peace is a state of mind where your soul feels calm, free from the dirt of hatred, negativity, criticism, inferiority and
