  • All you need is some experience of life! The course is delivered by a very experienced Psychologist in a down-to-earth, practical way.

Quality relationships are fundamental to success at home and work but the problem is that we don't have a very good set of tools for understanding them. When things go well we use phrases like 'we just get along', or 'we just seem to click' - and when things go wrong, we say 'its just a clash' or 'she drives me mad' or 'its no good, there's no point talking to him!'.

So, what if you had a better way of making sense of things? Just like any skill you've learnt in life - it started with understanding - the notes in music, the ingredients in a recipe, the tools for DIY, the rules of the road. In this course you'll learn a brilliant way of making sense of the people situations in your life.

Improve your impact and effectiveness at home and work

Whether you're interested in people or just find some of them really difficult(!) - change is possible once you understand what's going on. This is true for men and women, young or old.

  • Discover the three effective psychological 'states' that we all have
  • Learn to read these 'states' in yourself and others
  • Reduce the time you spend in the ineffective 'states'
  • Understand how to better influence others

The good news is that you already have what it takes to be successful in your relationships - it's about recognising the effective states and spending more time in them - a 10% increase could make the world of difference to you.

Contents and Overview

Within just two videos you'll get the idea. That's how simple it is. By the end of Section One, you'll be starting to make connections to your own life.

In Section Two you'll gain insights to your success at work - what is your impact with your boss and co-workers? You'll consider the same question about home - appreciating why things work well and why at times they might be difficult. If you're getting into arguments with people, Section Two is where you'll find out why and we'll give you some proven tips for getting out of this.

The course will help you to understand both whats going on AND what you can do about it.

In Section Three you'll learn techniques to improve the following: Parenting. Teenagers. Motivating a team. Difficult conversations. Giving a presentation or public speech. Surviving a toxic workplace. Long term relationships.

The course material has been created for Udemy by a team of professional psychologists with over 20 years experience of using the model.

Once you know what's going on between people - then you can do something about it. You can enjoy more successful relationships at work and home.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone of any age who is sometimes baffled by their relationships with people and wants them to be more successful. Its for people who may find themselves getting into conflict, needing to 'read' behaviour, influence people or who just want to improve a specific relationship but can't quite figure out how. If you want to be a more effective husband, wife, parent, manager or co-worker then we've also developed this with you in mind. It is not therapy nor is it a magic solution. It's a practical way to think about everyday people situations and how you can better at them.

When you are being effective, its because you are using a balance of the three effective states. Do you have a preference for one of them more than another? How much time do you spend in them?

The effective states - why relationships succeed

We can't be effective all of the time. So let's understand what happens when we're not. Which of the ineffective states do you most recognise in yourself?

Oh, the sleepless nights, the guilt that we're screwing them up! Why not watch this lesson and think about things in a more helpful way?

Parenting younger children

Forget the loud music and messy bedroom for a moment and join us in this video thinking about what's going on for teenagers and parents during these important years.

Parenting a teenager

Unlock the potential in your relationship by learning the language of relationship currencies. We all need to belong but we're all different in the amount and type of recognition that works for us. This powerful video asks you questions about your own needs and those of your long term partner. At its heart is a simple idea that becomes obvious once you've seen it.

The long term relationship

You probably avoid difficult conversations because like many people, you're not sure where they'll go once you've started! You worry that either party will lose their temper or can't quite think how best to say something. Help is at hand with a simple but powerful way to structure any difficult conversation and tips on how to get yourself in the right frame of mind before you start.

How to have that difficult conversation

Discover the traps that many managers fall into and use this video to develop motivation levels within the team. We'll ask you to think about your impact on the team and whether you have underplayed strengths that you could use more of.

Managing and leading a team

Bullying or aggressive behaviour at work is both ineffective and exhausting. But what if you're caught in the middle? How do you be a good manager when those above you don't role model the right approach? Here we offer five strategies to survive the toxic workplace.

Surviving a toxic workplace

The thing about nerves is that we often avoid the situation causing them - its a bad habit because that nervous feeling doesn't keep on growing and growing for ever - it reaches a peak and then reduces. So in this video we provide strategies to recognise and manage the nerves so that you can be yourself when you make that speech. Yes - even you!

Speeches and presentations ... gulp!

Thanks for taking the course and some practical advice on how to set improvement goals.
