Assertiveness is sometimes confused with aggression. We have made assertiveness PC (okay) in our culture. Where do you fall on the issue? Is aggression bad?

Admin Assertiveness is standing your ground. Aggression is fighting the battle and trying to take hostages. Generally I like the assertive mode. I had one male friend who wanted FLR but couldn't shut his mouth. After we had our discussions, he was into reviewing everything as I gave him directions. He was used to being the boss in a business he owned. He had played college ball and then coached. He wanted to get in my face; yet, he couldn't see he was doing that. In this case, I had to get aggressive. After we got that initial clash out of the way, I could give him a signal when he was getting close to the line. He wanted the FLR but he was having a terrible time moving into the reality of it.

Victoria I believe I am the same way as your man. I really do want an FLR, but I am having a terrible time adjusting without my wife's help in reprogramming. I told her from the onset that deprogramming me would be incredibly difficult, but I don't think she really believed me. I own two businesses, I am a trained fighter, I mentor people, I lead all day, every day. I really do not want to lead when I get home, I don't want to make decisions about who does dishes, I don't want to run the house. I want to have decisions made by my wife (who is a dominant woman by nature, and wants to lead), and I want to be clear on my role. The issue for me is that my sub-conscious wants to test her in seriousness about living an FLR. I found out this week that I really want to her to get agressive, lay down the law, tell me where my place is, and cement herself in authority. I actually feel that once the "initial clash" is over, then I will be able to submit without as much B.S. I think assertiveness should be pervasive in the leader of a relationship, but aggression is absolutely necessary in certain cases.

If you look at FLR it looks like the safest relationship a woman can have. She makes the rules, she sets the boundaries, she has final say and he both loves her and supports her in her role. In any other relationship women do not enjoy that kind of freedom or safety. This is a functional model for any woman who wants more control and less strife. There should be zero downside to female led relationships when entered into with open eyes and a whole heart between two people who love each other.

Women seem to have the right stuff for modern leadership -- "As Business Week announces that women have the ‘‘Right Stuff’’ (Sharpe, 2000), Fast Company concurs that ‘‘The future of business depends on women’’ (Hefferman, 2002, p. 9). Even more startling is Business Week’s subsequent cover story on the ‘‘New Gender Gap,’’ maintaining that ‘‘Men could become losers in a global economy that values mental power over might’’ (Conlin, 2003, p. 78).
