Nice post. My question to all is this. Let's debate when your competitior is aggressive, do you have to assertive or aggerssive. Compettior could be a person, product, institution, Company and so on. Can we make value judgement on aggressive, assertive behavior? or is it based on context or need? According to me niether is good or bad.
Cite Hr friends, respond.

Some people find it helpful to ask themselves two questions when in contact with aggressive or passive behavior: "What might they be feeling, what might they be needing?" Having these questions in mind helps towards understanding than being turned off to people exhibiting aggressiveness or passivity.

There is a slight confusion. what you are referring is 'aggressive behaviour of the competitor'. But the discussion is question is communication, and not behaviour.
you need to be as aggressive as your competitor in terms of behaviour in sales. Dominate and run faster. But while it comes to communicate to your customer, or outside world or your company, it is always better to be assertive than to be aggressive.
Because, people don't like to be dominated; and people who are aggressive can not be people-friendly. They are not fit for team work; can not make friends and lot more other disadvantages. OK. Regards,

Being an HR, people' person doesnot deserve at all to be aggressive but should be amicable and assertive in conviction should always be present in performing actions or dealing with critical circumstances, this is what my belief is and I totally adhere to that as well.
If one wishes to be loved by everyone then one has to inculcates those attributes that makes him/her prominent from the rest and being aggressive or rude is not a way to go for it, but from everywhere only reluctance will be received.
Yes sometimes the situation becomes too cumbersome that lets us become aggressive besides being soo conducive or passive by nature.
So it all depends on rthe kind of situation also that stimulates one to behave and to explicitly show his/her behavior accordingly, this is what my perspective is..even I firmly follow it too...
