The 3 R’s of Assertiveness

SF_DontActLikePrey_F1.inddA simple method to consistently be assertive (not passive or aggressive) is to use the 3 R’s.  Relationships, Rights, Respect.

We are all involved in professional and personal relationships.

Within each of these relationships, we and the other person have certain rights.

It is necessary that we treat ourselves and others, our rights and their rights, with respect.

For more information, and tools to assist you in becoming assertive more consistently, please see my book, Don’t Act Like Prey!  You can order it through my website,  If you leave me your email address, I will send you a special bonus chapter.

If this is a topic that would benefit your organization, association, or group, please contact me for speaking availability.  Additional information is available at

Thank you!
