Confrontations

Main topic:

A confrontation should not be confused with a 'conflict', which is the emotional reaction people have to being challenged.

Confrontations are essentially a combination of the values of assertiveness and honesty. You confront someone to assert your boundaries and clearly state your preferences. This is not to control the other person, merely to invite them to respect you.

All easier said than done, of course. BROJO has a number of resources to help you be more assertive and deliver confrontations easily and effectively:
