How to use "Un-assertive" in context?

Joe is an unassertive man. He rarely speaks up and doesn't like to stand out from the crowd. He finds it difficult to assert himself and let others know what he wants. This can lead to problems, as he often doesn't take no for an answer and ends up getting things he doesn't want. Luckily, over time he has started to learn how to be more assertive, and now he usually gets what he wants without having to fight for it.
