The Games That People Play: Decoding human interactions to get the relationships we want
Join us for a rare opportunity to hear from international transformational master coach and motivational speaker, Carolyn Stenhouse, helping those of us that want to ensure we’re not part of the game.
We all have ways of interacting that spawn psychological games capable of damaging relationships. These interactions influence how we feel about each other - our colleagues, our boss, our boards, funders and of course our friends, partners and children. We are all engaged in these games, it’s part of the dynamics of human relationships. People around us invite us into them daily, driven by universal human needs. Sometimes it’s us doing the inviting!
In all our relationships that matter, the better skilled we are at spotting the motivations and unmet need in ourselves and others, the better able we are to have the relationships we want. If we get those, we are far more likely to get the results and outcomes we want. Most of the time the game drivers are invisible, hidden to all the players. It takes skill to spot what’s going on, to navigate a way through.
Carolyn will draw on the theories of Dr Eric Berne, whose 1964 best-selling book of this talk title, broke new ground in our understanding of human relationships. Updated in 2004, Berne’s work spawned a generation of fresh thinking and transformative work in the field of behavioural science.
