Assertive vs Pushy

Assertiveness comes from the inside. It drives a person and then a team. Assertiveness means being prepared to prepare others into battle.

Pushy is getting people to do what you can’t yourself. It makes you dependant and not necessarily successful. If anything it makes people annoyed and you unconfident.

I’m scared that I’m not showing the level of leadership required to drive a team of men. They are great artists, but less ability to capture the connection. Whilst I am able to connect complex ideas together, I lack the ability to communicate it clearly and effectively. So I look really weak.

Funny thing is that Zakhir my actual CD entrusted me with this role. There must be something that he saw in me that says I can do it. If he can see it, I have to see it too.
