How to Assert Yourself Without Being Assertive, and Other Lessons I Was Told to Learn: What I Have Learned

In a previous post, How to Assert Yourself Without Being Assertive, and Other Lessons I Was Told to Learn, I began to document some of the pivotal experiences that happened to me professionally. The supervisors who were part of these experiences were trying to change my impact on the team through what I now believe was negative behavior modification.

Before writing about these incidents in one place, I never made the connection about their cumulative impact. I also never thought of my previous supervisors’ leadership as poor, as I was craving their positive feedback. I plan to explore these experiences in a series of blogs. In this blog post, I’ll share the lessons learned from exploring the impact of poor supervision and leadership. This post has been updated to reflect some additional lessons learned.
