Q&A Can You Stop People Communicating Aggressively? (EP052)

Can you stop people communicating aggressively with you? This was a question I received from one of my video course students. You may have come across this situation yourself. Perhaps you’ve asked yourself, “how to deal with aggressive communicators” or “how to stop people communicating aggressively”. 

Dealing with people who communicate aggressively with you is challenging, especially if you’re coming from a passive style of communication. Rather than changing the other person’s communication style (which is near impossible), a better strategy is to use assertive communication to guide them to communicate with you the way you want.

Assertive communication is the best style of communication to use in both your personal and business life. It helps you set boundaries and communicate more openly and honestly to people around you. When you master assertive communication, you feel more empowered and in control of your life, and you can stop those aggressive communicators!

In this podcast episode, I answer the question, “Can you stop people communicating aggressively with you?”.

  • The 4 different styles of communication
