8 Keys to Eliminating Passive-Aggressiveness free pdf Many people often say "yes" to something when they'd rather say "no." They offer cooperation through words but follow up with how they really feel-in actions that contradict their words. That's passive-aggression. At its heart, passive-aggression is about being untrue to oneself, which makes it impossible to have a clean relationship with others. Passive-aggression as a communication method doesn't make someone "bad." It is simply a strategy learned in childhood as a coping mechanism, a hard-to-break habit. Changing passive-aggressive behavior requires knowledge, tools, and practice, as outlined here. The book offers effective methods for transforming passive-aggression into healthy assertiveness to communicate in constructive ways through eight keys: Recognize Your Hidden Anger- Reconnect Your Emotions to Your Thoughts- Listen to Your Body- Set Healthy Boundaries- Communicate Assertively- Interact Using Mindfulness- Disable the Enabler- and Problem-Solve for Better Outcomes. Hands-on exercises are featured, enabling readers to better understand themselves.
