When slighted, taken advantage of, or treated rudely, most people will pretend to ignore the situation, complain to friends, or lose their temper. They often miss the most effective strategy of all: directly confronting the situation with a positive attitude. For everyone who was never taught or never realized that between "bully" and "wimp" lies a range of behavior that is positive, dignified, and useful for dealing with life's bothersome situations, Barbara Pachter offers a thorough, practical, step-by-step guide that combines business etiquette with the principles of assertiveness training. She helps readers assess their usual confrontational style; shows confronters (the good, the bad, and the ugly) in action; explains the three essential steps of positive confrontation; and tells how to think through another person's position.
