3 R’s of Assertiveness/Don’t Act Like Prey

In 2013 I published my first book, Don’t Act Like Prey!: A Woman’s Guide to Self-Empowerment. Since the eBook is on sale from Smashwords for the month of July (25% off, or $3.74), I thought it would be an appropriate time to repost some of the materials about the book. 

Sometimes when I spoke on the topic of assertiveness I used the title Don’t Act Like Prey! as it was the title of my book.  Sometimes I used the title 3 R’s of Assertiveness as that seemed to better communicate the content of the session to event planners and participants.

This video is a very condensed presentation on assertiveness. The 3 R’s are relationships, rights, and respect. These are also discussed in my book.

We all have professional and personal relationships.  Within each of these relationships we and the other party have certain rights.  When we do not respect ourselves and our rights, we are passive.  When we do not respect others and their rights, we are aggressive.  When we respect both ourselves and others, we are assertive.

To order Don’t Act Like Prey!  as an eBook from Smashwords, go to my Smashwords page. Be sure to select the format for your eReader.

To order from Amazon or Barnes and Noble (eBooks or paperback) go to my website

If you order the eBook, please go to my website and scroll to the bottom of the page to download a copy of the tables.  The tables are in the eBook, but it’s difficult to record your thoughts and reflections in an eBook.  For that reason, I am providing complimentary PDF tables.

For additional information and books go to my website and/or my Author Central Page on Amazon.  You can follow me to receive updates on my works.

Thank you!
