Power can be a Wonderful Thing

Since Choice Theory is often about reducing your use of external control, we tend to shy away from admitting we may have a high power need. The power need is frequently misunderstood; it does not have to mean you are a bully and a control freak. Of course, some people with a high need for power are bullies and control freaks, but that isn’t the only way to manifest this need. Toddlers naturally excel at powering over other people.

Self-Transformation: Five Steps to Becoming the Person You Want to Be

You might remember a time when those bracelets with the “WWJD?” inscription were popular. It was designed as a reminder for the wearer to act in a way he or she valued and wanted to emulate. This provided a path for Christians, but what about those who didn’t believe?

As this year draws to a close, some of you are already looking ahead to what you want to do in the year ahead. It’s the time of year we begin self-reflection in order to adjust our course for the upcoming year. In my work coaching people, I find it interesting that many of my clients set very clear intentions for what they want to accomplish.

by Kim Olver In relationships, it is not uncommon for couples to have difficulties—your partner may do things that drive you crazy. In my work with couples, I often hear complaints about men leaving their dirty clothes right next to the hamper. I have seen women on the verge of divorce or a mental breakdown over this seemingly simple and innocent issue.
