THE REAL SOLUTION
Most people can be assertive in some situations, and yet be ineffectual in others. The Real Solution Assertiveness Workbook expands the number of situations in which you can choose to be assertive. When a person is passive, opportunities are lost and unpleasant situations are tolerated. In time, bad feelings can build to a point where one more event can trigger an explosion of resentment that in turn provokes criticism or rejection. Graduated homework assignments allow participants to apply their newly acquired skills. The Real Solution Assertiveness Workbook emphasizes the building of assertiveness skills, using model presentation, rehearsal, positive feedback, prompting, and homework assignments.
"The Assertiveness Workbook helped me solve my problems at work with my boss and I'm feeling like I'm really going to succeed now. I can't believe how easy it was." Carol T., Fremont, CA.
