Publisher's Summary

Has there ever been a time when you've felt taken advantage of at work? Or struggled to ask for what you wanted? We've all been there, and it doesn't feel good. This is why assertiveness is so important.

Assertion means standing up for what you want; stating your needs clearly. It means expressing opposition. It means confrontation, and it takes courage. Some find it harder than others because of their natural easy-going style, and therefore more practice is required. However, the aim should not be just to gain a win. The aim should be to solve the problem and get the best result. Assertion should not be synonymous with aggression because aggressive people adopt a "I win, you lose" mentality to achieve their objectives.

In this audiobook, Margaret will discuss:

  • Who will benefit from the audiobook: Our assertive training audiobook enables delegates to understand the processes which will make them more effective and increase their confidence and sense of achievement. Anyone who needs to master the principles and practices of effective, assertive communication.

Very well-written and to-the-point

Communication is one of my flaws. The finest part of the book is that it gets to the base of the problem and helps you change your beliefs, which, in turn, leads to you being a more satisfied communicator with practice.

So eye-opening!

I've completed roughly half of the workbook. It's something I utilize in addition to standard therapy. The book does a good job of giving you an overview of the theory before requiring you to practice or apply it in your own life.
