Being just assertive enough

In this HBR article they discuss how to be just assertive enough so that you are, on the one hand not too pushy, but on the other not too loose – thus not challenging your team. 

From my last years in leadership roles in AIESEC and other organizations I can clearly see that I have a tendancy toward being too overbearing and a quite challenging person to have as a leader. Qualities that make me great in certain teams can create stress when I am a team leader. 

The article, while an interesting commentary, doesn't offer a whole lot of habits or suggestions – so I'd ask you: what so you think are habits or practices that could help someone getting the balance much more right?
