Chapter 1 - What are problem people?

What are Problem People? 

"Anyone can become angry-THAT IS EASY. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way-THAT IS NOT EASY" Aristotle 

In this chapter you will learn typical examples of problem people. Let’s examine these in more detail.  

Chapter 2 - What is a difficult person? Strategies for handling them

What is a Difficult Person?

 

Everybody is somebody’s difficult person. 

Difficult people make the easy, difficult; the difficult, impossible and life in general miserable. Learning to deal effectively with difficult people can ease stress in your life, allow you to be more productive at work and at home, and teach you how not to be a difficult person in your own right. In this chapter you will learn about the difficult people.  

Chapter 3 - The Theory of Assertiveness

 

This chapter allows you to assess the internal dialogue that controls our thoughts, feelings and possible actions and also our external dialogue (what we say to others and the messages we give out through our body language). It gives you the opportunity to examine the benefits of assertiveness techniques and determine which are the most effective for you.

What you will learn is;

  • The theory of assertivenss
  • Quiz - How assertive are you and your vocal behaviours
  • When is the right time to be assertive
  • How to become more assertive
