Publisher's Summary

Do you consider yourself a people pleaser? Are you Mr. Nice Guy? Have you had enough of hearing yourself saying "yes" when you wanted to say "no"? Are you sick being a doormat and sick of people walking over you all the time? Then keep on reading.

People around you probably consider you a very nice person. Your colleagues know they can ask you for help and know you will get it done. But for important decisions, your colleagues consult someone else. Or in meetings, you wait for the right moment to give your opinion. After a while, you grab your chance, but nobody pays attention. You realize this behavior is not going to bring you far, and you want to fix it.

In Assertiveness for Men, you will discover:

  • What the percolator effect means
  • What oxytocin is, what it does, and how you can raise it
  • How you can increase your assertiveness in only two minutes 
  • The 13 examples of how to say "no" in a respectful and assertive way
  • The four steps to learn how to react naturally in an assertive way
  • The four tips to be an assertive listener 
  • How to take criticism
  • The importance of body language and assertiveness

Fair warning. Being more assertive can have some side effects.

Just to name a few:

  • People will listen to you and offer you help
  • Women will find you more attractive (even your own wife)
  • People won´t start difficult discussion because they know it´s a lost battle
  • You will get the long-deserved promotion and salary raise without asking for it

You might think that listening to a book will not make you a more assertive person for life. That's why it's jam-packed with exercises and methods. It´s not solely a book, it's a workbook. You will have to do the exercises yourself.

You deserve to live life on your own terms. Find out how your life can change by downloading today.

Good reminders

I found that I interrupt people and may show that I don't care about what they have to say. Assertiveness has both good and bad to it. Not a bad audiobook!
