All of us can think of times when we know we should speak up, but we don’t. When we feel like we’re being taken advantage of, but we just accept it. Later, we kick ourselves, thinking: “If only I would have said something!” If this sounds like you, look no further! This book serves as a complete guide to understanding assertiveness and becoming more assertive in your own life. Being able to assert yourself and communicate effectively is key to building great relationships. This book takes an engaging look at how to develop confidence and communication skills to ensure positive outcomes from your interactions with others. When we find ourselves under pressure or in confrontational situations, we may react aggressively or back down and say nothing. Neither approach is likely to result in a positive outcome, and we’re likely to come away from the situation wishing we’d handled things differently. Failure to assert ourselves and communicate clearly can negatively impact our interactions with friends, family, and colleagues, and is likely to affect our personal effectiveness and productivity as well.
