The attached video is an excerpt from a very condensed presentation on assertiveness. The title of the presentation is The 3 R’s of Assertiveness. (An alternative title is Don’t Act Like Prey!.)
The 3 R’s are relationships, rights, and respect. If we can remember these three, it becomes easier to be assertive in any situation rather than passive or aggressive.
Part 1, The Start of the Story, includes a work experience I had where I knew I needed to be assertive, but did not know immediately how to do that.
Each week I will post the next section of the presentation. Next week will be on relationships.
