Tips on being Assertive by Dr Denis McBrinn, narrated by Sara Dylan. This audiobook will bring to you a clear and comprehensive list of useful tips to help you become more assertive

The communication skill of being assertive, is about striking the right balance between our needs and the needs of others.

If we are always centred on satisfying our own needs, at the expense of others, we will be perceived as being selfish and aggressive.

On the other hand, if we are always putting the needs of others first and neglecting our own essential needs, we risk being taken for granted and our self-esteem will suffer.

Assertiveness is about finding the right response to situations, that is neither aggressive nor passive. It is an important communication tool, that can be learned and developed, with practice.

People Smart - Confidence When It Matters Most

$3.99

Dr Denis McBrinn From the bestselling audiobook: Go for it! Be Confident by Dr Denis McBrinn.This Audio will address the three People Smart areas of: Building Self Confidence, Being Confident with Others, and Confident Social Skills.

The starting point for building confidence is yourself. We know that confidence comes from within – it is not outside us and it is all to do with trust. The most important relationship in our lives is the one we develop with ourselves. How well do you know and trust yourself? How good a friend are you to yourself?

Others will treat you according to the way you see yourself. If you believe, deep down, you are a capable, worthwhile person and know that you deserve to be treated well, then that is the way others will treat you. On the other hand, if you don’t value yourself, then no one else will. If you are always putting yourself down, people will treat you as a door mat and walk all over you. Developing people skills is a pre-requisite to building confidence with others.

Social gatherings like weddings, funerals, christenings and parties can be uncomfortable and stressful situations, especially when we feel we are lacking in confidence. Social skills are arguably the most important set of abilities we can develop and practice to help build self- confidence. Having confident social skills will help you to meet interesting people, get that job you want, progress further in your career and establish good relationships.

This Audio will address the three People Smart areas of: Building Self Confidence, Being Confident with Others, and Confident Social Skills.

$3.99

By Dr Denis McBrinn It’s only natural to feel nervous during a job interview, but part of performing well is not letting your anxiety show. This audio single will bring advice and practical techniques to help you to do your best when it matters most.

This audio single contains two major sections: Job Interviews: Confidence when it matters most, and Confidence at Work. First Job Interviews: It’s only natural to feel nervous during a job interview, but part of performing well is not letting your anxiety show. Your goal is to make a good impression from the start, which means appearing confident to those evaluating you. If you show a lack of confidence, you probably won’t be considered as a serious candidate for the job. One of the best ways to appear confident is to demonstrate how well you perform under pressure. This audio will help you to do just that and provide you with tips on preparation, communication, body language, questions to expect and how to dress..

Second Confidence at Work: So you are successful at the job interview and get the job. We all know it’s important to at least appear confident at work. Because the way you present yourself in the workplace is pivotal to your success, you want to present the most confident version of yourself at work. Essentially being confident in your professional life centres around looking the part; feeling at ease with yourself and others; being cooperative and pleasant to work with. Confidence at work is being open, honest and straightforward with colleagues, clients and customers; having a sense of humour and being very good at what you do. Denis McBrinn takes you through a conversation about how you can build your confidence at work.

Dealing with Angry People
  • Dealing with Angry People
In cart Not available Out of stock
$9.99

This audiobook will equip you with proven techniques to successfully communicate with angry people and protect yourself from violence

Have you ever been angry? I’m sure you have. How did it feel? What caused it? Did you lash out physically at furniture or people or just fume quietly?

Have you ever experienced an angry customer, or patient, or family member and been at a loss as to how to calm things down? Upon reflection have you maybe sometimes escalated the anger in the other person by arguing or speaking over or interrupting their angry rant?

Have you ever seen someone reach a point where they do kick furniture about or even raise a hand to strike you?

This audiobook is designed to give you an understanding of what anger is and when encountered in someone else what to do and what not to do to calm things down and reach a more rational way forward.

Psychologists recognise three types of anger: 1. There is hasty and sudden anger often connected to the impulse for self-preservation. It is shared by human and other animals, and it occurs when the animal, the person, is tormented or trapped. 2. Then there is the more common settled and deliberate anger possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment by others. 3. And finally, dispositional anger often related more to character traits than to instincts or cognitions. Irritability, sullenness and churlishness are examples of this

In this audiobook we will be focusing mostly on type 2 where the anger is settled and deliberate, possibly a reaction to perceived deliberate harm or unfair treatment. Of course you may encounter all three types.

Some examples of the type 2 kind of anger might include a customer, who is complaining about the standard of the product they have purchased, or the householder who is angry at the engineer who is trying to get their electricity supply back on, or their heating repaired on a cold winter’s day.

Whether they are right or wrong, their perception is that you or your organisation is to blame and they will vent their anger and hopefully not their violence, on you.

You might work in a shop, or a bank, or you might be a social worker visiting your clients at their homes? You might be a nurse or Doctor dealing with unruly patients in Emergency on a Saturday night, or a police officer for whom the angry person is a frequent occurrence. Whatever your role in life you are going to encounter an angry person at some point. Be prepared.

Relax: Escape from the Stress in Your Life
  • Relax: Escape from the Stress in Your Life
In cart Not available Out of stock
$3.99

A full 30 minute progressive muscular relaxation session guided by the hypnotic voice of Norman Brook.

This recording is designed to teach you to relax, to escape from the stress of everyday life, forget your worries and just let go.

To get you to relax we are going to ask you to perform a series of exercises. When a muscle is contracted and then relaxed it returns to a state that is more relaxed than before the contraction took place. To achieve a totally relaxed state we need to perform a series of exercises that contract and relax all the muscles in your body. Eventually only a few seconds will be needed to achieve full body relaxation. Take time to learn this and like self directed relaxation the results can be very rewarding.
