Managing Your Crazy® Personal Development Program Overview

Counseling/Coaching Training Summary

There are three key separate parts that work together providing insights in guiding a person to gaining answers, achieve healthier self-awareness and thinking, healing, establishing self-worth, confidence moving forward, and improving relationships.

These three areas are

  • Understanding how the brain generates (reactionary) thoughts and emotions subconsciously and how to take charge of those with conscious mind (cognitive) thinking.

  • Understanding how personality dynamics provide hard wired filters and magnify those subconscious thoughts and emotions.

  • Understanding how, when, where, and why our instinctive thoughts and emotions are there, and more importantly how to manage them and convert them to realize our cognitive potential and improve our relationships.

General Counseling Session Outline

Ideally, in most cases, you will be able to provide these insights in five hours that can be broken into two 2-hour sessions and one 1-hour session. The two hour sessions should be within a week of each other for continuity. Feel free to deliver them in any combination you like, even up to six 45-minute sessions.

Critical: Understanding the Personality Dynamics

The most complex portion is understanding the personality dynamics because there are so many variables. This is a most critical area to grasp because

a) We cannot escape these hardwired filters,

b) Understanding how a client’s thought patterns and motivations work gives the counselor a great understanding of how to communicate to the client and how to discern the way the client is communicating back their needs and perceptions.

Once you gain this expertise you will be able to phrase concepts in clear ways which clients can grasp improving their trust with you that you ‘get them,’ and be able to guide them to reshape their expectations and perceptions in a transference giving them control and ownership of their thoughts and emotions.
