Assertiveness is a linguistic skill, and this linguistic skill is the key to our personal power. Our status as individuals is largely decided in natural conversation, and rather than 'learning how to stand up for ourselves' we are better off examining what is happening to our status in everyday chit-chat, so that we can indeed be more assertive, but in a completely natural way. This book looks at the various kinds of linguistic tricks people use as they joust for status, setting the reader many exercises in order to develop new ways of speaking and relating. Rather than behaving out of character you will simply become a more skilled version of the person you already are. If we practise a skill we can master it, and this book offers you exercises for this purpose. Armed with the skills you will develop while working through this book, you will be able to use these new skills to help you get what you want

We also need to know how various social 'games' work, and with this knowledge we can both bring out the best in others and deal effectively with manipulators, liars, and bullies. Do you tear your hair out when manipulative people answer your question with a question? Do you need to know who's been dipping into the petty cash? 

Skilled use of language is crucial to enable us to reach the pinnacle of interpersonal skill, so there is an additional supplementary language study workbook available to offer more practice exercises and discussion.

From the Author:

Rather than treading the well-worn path of popular psychology, this book draws from a much broader base, but in spite of this the ideas are all easy to follow. Each idea is presented in the form of everyday conversation and followed by discussion and exercises. There is also a section on voice with key tips on voice production, and a section on posture with all of the exercises set by today's top personal trainers.
            

The book also examines status as in the term used in theatre, explaining how we can exude more natural leadership when we need to. It explains how we can adjust our posture, our voice, and our use of language to do this. We need to be able to handle verbal jousting matches, so I've included many exercises to enable you to counter the tricks of status players, with real examples offered by people from many walks of life. I've also included numerous fictitious examples to help you to learn the techniques. You'll learn a very wide range of useful skills.
This book will enable you to become more persuasive, more respected, and more charismatic, all in a natural way. You will feel a real lift in your personal status and enjoy the many benefits that come with this.

About the Author:

James Taylor has spent many years studying interpersonal interaction, looking at many concepts in Pragmatics, Semantics, Philosophy and Psychology, as well as more well-known  popular Linguistics and Psychology literature. In Get it: Understand it: Get ahead we see how people use many linguistic tricks as they compete for power, and also we see how these tricks and their antidotes can be understood by anyone.
