Publisher's Summary

Are you tired of people not listening to you? Do you want to learn how to speak up for yourself? Do you wish you could quit saying yes to everything, even when you don’t want to? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will want to keep reading.

Assertiveness. That is the key to communicating. However, many of us have never learned how to be assertive. For those who think they are assertive, there is a chance that they could cross the line into being aggressive. For whatever reason, our society has caused us to believe that if you aren’t rude and mean to others, you’ll get walked all over. That’s simply not true. In fact, being aggressive is more likely to make people dislike you than respect you. They simply say yes out of fear and not respect, which is not the same thing.

But if we all can learn to find the middle ground of these two extremes with assertiveness, we’d all be pleasantly surprised by the effect it has on our lives. We will explore:

  • How we all communicate with each other in various ways through verbal and nonverbal language
  • What it means to be an assertive communicator
  • The importance of setting boundaries and how to do so
  • Verbal and nonverbal strategies for being more assertive
  • How to get to know yourself better so that you can learn how to become more assertive

And much more.

Learning how to become assertive is just like learning any other skill. All you need are the right tools and some practice time, and you can become assertive. We’ll cover all that you need to know within this book and then some, so you will be well on your way to learning how to speak up for yourself in a respectful manner. When you do, you will immediately notice how others treat you differently. For some, especially if you have been a people pleaser, others may not be too happy with your newfound voice, but that’s okay.

If you are serious about becoming more assertive and being a better communicator, click “buy now”. You won’t regret it.

Great book

Great book, have recommended it to others and they have not been disappointed. It goes much further than other books that tackle the subject of assertiveness yet often miss the point. It focuses on self expression and looks at the beliefs that prevent us from doing do in a way that preserves the things we care about.

Well written, comprehensive, great narration

The book was written in a simple, clear, comprehensive format, discussing different situations & relationships. It felt as if the author is talking to you and is present. The narrator was great! I will be introducing this book to others & I recommend parents & schools use it to teach school aged children so they can practice these life skills early in life.
