ABSTRACT
This article discusses assertiveness in the workplace and its relationship to organizational leadership. Leaders with low levels of assertiveness may be viewed as too passive while leaders who exhibit extremely assertive behavior can be perceived as too hostile. The author explores assertiveness and its relationship to leader success or failure. Several studies have demonstrated that employees viewed extremes in assertiveness as weaknesses in leaders rather than strengths. The relationship between assertiveness and business success was also discussed.
