Belief Systems: The Effective Management of Self-Esteem by Internalizing Programmes from Assertion and Awareness Training. Management Development: Personal Growth through Intra-Personal Skills. Coombe Lodge Working Paper. Information Bank Number 2048.
Marsh, D. T.
This second paper in the intrapersonal skills series is concerned with belief systems and how individuals can manage self-esteem by internalizing assertion and awareness training program concepts. The introduction of the paper defines self-esteem and examines how individuals form their self-concepts. It is proposed that persons gather and selectively encode information from external events in accordance with some already existing internal scripts. Assertion training is described as a way to increase self-esteem and respect by enabling people to choose to respond by defining a set of rights which people must learn to act upon. Two sets of rights which might be internalized are presented. The first set concerns the basic rights of the individual in the work situation and 10 work-related rights are listed and explained. Meetings at work are presented as activities which can create stress and conflict, and 12 rights related to meetings are listed. The second set of rights concerns general basic rights of the individual, and 11 such rights are listed and discussed. (NRB)
