Overcoming Difficult People - Assertiveness with Games Players

Regain control over Difficult People - a practical approach to using assertiveness when dealing with Games Players

Do you have difficult people in your life? People who make you feel insecure, angry, or undermined? People who you seemingly can’t ever say the right thing to do and always criticise or trap you? These people might be in your home or work life but I am sure you will know some! Overcome Difficult People is a practical programme designed to help you easily and calmly deal with Games Players using assertiveness, honesty and disarming techniques. My goal is for you to feel happy, confident and in control even in difficult relationships and manipulative interactions.

This programme uses 100% practical tools and techniques to help you conquer difficult situations. We look at 20 different types of Games Players (most of whom I’m sure you will have met during your life) and then 6 practical methods to disarm them immediately and regain your confidence and control. Being in a conversation or relationship with a Games Player is very circular, frustrating, and often hurtful, so this course will help you break that loop and finally feel calm and free! That annoying neighbour who won’t stop criticising you, or the frustrating colleague who asks for constant advice and then tells you none of it will work….? Yep - they’re all in the Games Player theory!

Games Player theory is entertaining and memorable - investigating negative manipulative techniques like Poor Me, Blemish, Mine’s Better, Only Joking and Sulking, plus lots more. We look at family dynamics, aggression, and reasons why perfectly good people might play games… possibly even you do without realising! Then we detail exactly what you can say or do: like how to be Assertive, ways to live with these people comfortably, how to play the game back (and better!), and more. Every single videos uses real life examples and give practical tools you can use right away to regain control against manipulative conversations.
