Real Solution Assertiveness Workbook

















Most people can be assertive in some situations,

and yet not
be effectual in others. The Real Solution

Assertiveness Workbook
expands the number of situations in which

a person can choose to
be assertive. When a person is passive,

opportunities are lost

and unpleasant situations are tolerated. In time, bad feelings
can build to a point where one more event can trigger an explosion
of resentment that in turn provokes criticism or rejection.
