TEAM THEORY: Graded assertiveness technique โ†—

ยท team

Graded assertiveness is a communication technique used in areas like aviationโœˆ and healthcare๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ for raising safety concerns, one step at a time.

The person who is raising the concern asks a series๐Ÿ“ of questions that progressively become more direct.

An example of this is:

You might start with: a ๐‡๐ข๐ง๐ญ๐Ÿ’ก.

If you donโ€™t get a response that satisfies your concern you might state: a ๐๐ซ๐ž๐Ÿ๐ž๐ซ๐ž๐ง๐œ๐ž๐Ÿ”€

If the issue is still unresolved it might be the time for a more direct: ๐๐ฎ๐ž๐ซ๐ฒ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

You make: a ๐’๐ก๐š๐ซ๐ž๐ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ ๐ ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ

You make: a ๐’๐ญ๐š๐ญ๐ž๐ฆ๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿซ

You give: a ๐‚๐จ๐ฆ๐ฆ๐š๐ง๐๐Ÿ‘ฎโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

This is an example of how it would be used in aviation.
