Case Study

Practicing Assertion at Workplace

Mona is a basic grade therapist working within a busy multidisciplinary team. During weekly team meetings, her supervisor, Raj, has offered Mona’ name for tasks without consulting her – most recently, to represent the profession at a careers day in her absence.

Mona feels angry and frustrated by the situation, which seems beyond her control, leading to feelings of inadequacy. It is important she recognizes these feelings and how they may affect her behaviour. They may, for example, result in her remaining inwardly frustrated or venting her feelings, which could lead to deterioration in the relationship with her supervisor.

Question 1. What are the advantages/ disadvantages of practicing Assertion at the Work Place?

Question 2. How would you deal with such a situation had you been in Mona’s place?

Question 3. While delegating work, how important do you think it is to consult subordinates?
