Book Giveaway! “Civilized Assertiveness For Women: Communication with Backbone…Not Bite”

by admin on January 19, 2013

Another chance to win a book!   This is an out of print, used book from my personal bookshelf.    From the back cover:

“Civilized Assertiveness gives you the words to stand up for yourself while still being respectful of others.”
Learn six ways to say NO
Confront conflict and uncomfortable situations
Ask for a raise and help at work
Deal with toxic competition at work
You don’t have to be pushy to get what you want!

It’s a great book as evidenced by the fact that the 2003 edition has held its value and the cheapest used book is about $16.00.   The book contains situational dialogs to help the reader grasp the concept of polite assertiveness.   Dr. Judith S. McClure is an educational psychologist, business consultant and communications expert.

I really need some advice in polite responses to rudeness. I encountered such person yesterday and didn’t know how to respond, so I missed my opportunity to stand up for myself and just kept quiet…so frustrating!
