Is being Assertive the same as being Aggressive? …. NO

Assertiveness is telling people what you expect of them or clarifying what they expect from you. Being clear, concise, and letting others know what you expect is not only being assertive but a quality of a servant leader.

Aggressiveness is putting people down or yelling at them. Being overbearing, intense, and controlling are not qualities of a servant leader.
