Καθορισμός, προσδιορισμός

Καθορισμός = kathorismos (with the stress on the last "o")
προσδιορισμός = prosdiorismos (with the stress on the last "o")

In the sense of "defining, determining". Any of the two will do, they are interchangeable

In the sense of "assertiveness, determination", the Greek equivalent is αποφασιστικότητα = apofasistikotita (with the stress in the second "o")
