The Assertiveness Workbook: How to Express Your Ideas and Stand Up for Yourself at Work and in Relationships

( 6 )

Overview

The overassertive schoolyard bully often grows into an angry boss or violent spouse. The shy, unassertive youth may live forever as a pushover-timid, unconfident, and oblivious to the joy and dignity that every human deserves. What may come as a surprise is how much these two types of people have in common. Neither one is communicating effectively. Neither one is really satisfying his or her inner needs.

In friendly, non-judgmental language, The Assertiveness Workbook ...

Overview

The overassertive schoolyard bully often grows into an angry boss or violent spouse. The shy, unassertive youth may live forever as a pushover-timid, unconfident, and oblivious to the joy and dignity that every human deserves. What may come as a surprise is how much these two types of people have in common. Neither one is communicating effectively. Neither one is really satisfying his or her inner needs.

In friendly, non-judgmental language, The Assertiveness Workbook demonstrates how to get the most out of relationships-and life-by engaging in healthy, two-way expressions of needs and desires.

The first half of the workbook reveals the ways in which stress, expectations, and engrained beliefs challenge our ability to assert ourselves properly. The second half-"Becoming Assertive"-focuses on the actual skills needed to become assertive. Discussing nonverbal communication, providing and receiving feedback, saying "no," and making requests, it concludes with two chapters on that most difficult of subjects: Confrontation.

Used in training workshops and by practicing clinicians, The Assertiveness Workbook is more than just a manual. Photocopy-ready scorecards, exercises, worksheets, and self-assessments all contribute to the ultimate goal: Feeling comfortable with yourself and comfortable with assertive behavior.

    practical and helpful!

    I have enjoyed this workbook tremendously. It informs you of the differences between assertiveness and aggresiveness/passivity/passive-aggresivness. It then gives you practical tips on how to increase your assertiveness, all of which I found easy to incorporate into my hectic daily schedule. It changed the way I think about myself.

    ASSERTIVENESS IS YOU!

    I've learned that assertiveness is simply being yourself. It is contributing to those around you in a positive way. It is respecting people for who they are. It is respecting the differences in one another. It is becoming more aware of what is important to others. It is speaking with wisdom. We all want the approval of others, but we must understand not everyone will be receptive to what we say. However, we will receive the respect of others when we speak up regardless of whether or not they agree.

    Great Program!

    I purchased the Assertiveness Workbook by Randy Paterson for my team last year after our 360* Reviews to develop our communications skills in the department and with other departments.

    We worked together on one chapter every other week and sometimes met for our discussions over lunch. Our results were so successful that my recent purchase was for another department that wanted to mimic our success and for one of the girls in my department's mother.

    I recommend this book for any individual or group wanting to improve their communications skills.

    It helps people clearly identify the difference in passive, passive-agressive, and agressive behavior and how to improve communicating skills yourself and how to communicate to others aho may be using on of these communication techniques versus the more effective; assertiveness.
