The Five Steps to Assertiveness

24-page E-book in PDF format

About The Five Steps to Assertiveness

Ive read most of the pop-psychology literature on assertiveness over the last 20+ years. Many of the books are excellent. They, like this ebook, deal with a variety of assertivness aspects; for example, they talk about this peak experience for self, how to handle other assertive people, feeling vulnerable or subserviant, taking an assertiveness exam, how to stand up for yourself, how to competently assess yourself and others, how to develop assertiveness skills and self confidence, how to feel self assured and express yourself and your opinions, how to feel comfortable being outspoken, even being opinionated, how to stop being a human doormat, to stop feeling intimidated and to deal with domineering people, how to be straight forward and stop people from walking all over you, how to stop feeling inhibited, insecure, hesitant, and so on.

Most of these books are too long to cover this relatively simple subject. Ive boiled down the concepts in these books into the basic five steps. In addition, Ive made this as easy to understand as is humanly possible, combining what Ive read with what Ive learned from clients.

There are five basic steps of and three levels of assertiveness. I explain the difference between assertiveness, non-assertiveness, passivity, and passive aggression.

To be assertive, you have to know the difference between content and process in your communication. You have to know how to "articulate the process" using just the right words, which I supply (almost eight hundred). This latter idea is the one thing that will increase your assertiveness fifty percent, even if you do nothing else.

I describe the two general categories of excuses and the seven most common reasons used to justify not being assertive. Then I describe thirteen points that make assertiveness effective. I sprinkle examples throughout the ebook, but include another section at the end with several more in-depth examples.

Like my other ebooks, this one has no fat. Think of it as a "Cliffs Notes" publication. It's "sort of" a quick read (about an hour or two). I have to explain only a few terms you probably haven't heard before. "Behavioral types;" that is, teachers and adults with some psychology background will recognize most of the terms. The theory I espouse is different from standard "behavior change" books. It works better and is very simple to understand. That's the point of an ebook. My research has not turned up another ebook that does what mine does.

Ebooks are replacing standard books because they are quicker and easier to obtain. There is a need for immediate information, reasonably priced. I've priced this ebook to be at least twenty percent undermarket, considering what bookstores charge and the travel costs to and from.

About author Doctor Steven T. Griggs PhD

I"ve been a practicing psychologist in an outpatient setting for over twenty years. I run into eight conditions almost every day (addictions, anxiety, ADHD/learning disabilities, assertiveness, childrens behaviors, mood disorders, relationships and self-esteem). Relationships are one of the most important of these in its own right, but in every one of the other seven areas, it, like self-esteem and assertiveness plays a huge role. Usually, when people have a good relationship, the problems in each of these groups diminish. A graduate professor once told me there are two things that either make or break people. One is employment and the other is having a good relationship.
