I Think, Therefore I Am: Dealing With An Inflated Self-Concept

The way we think about ourselves and how others perceive us can be well-aligned or light years apart. This is often the case for managers and leaders, who can believe that they know what they are doing simply because they have been given the job. They can have difficulty recognizing that what they believe about themselves is very different than the experience of their direct reports, and can have a lot of trouble receiving feedback about the negative impact of their leadership behavior. This is particularly true for the Leader Striving Style.

Romance Style of the Socializer

If you are a Socializer, you are a romantic at heart and need to be romanced in a public fashion. No holds barred for you. Out with the chocolate and roses! Wining and dining is the order of the day. You focus on making your partner feel special and there is no effort you won’t make to do this, as you want to show your lover how much you care. You shower them with attention and secretly want them to do the same for you although you may never ask them to.

Romance Style of the Leader

Tips for Leader Striving Style on Valentine's Day: Loosen up, lighten up, and let go of control. You don’t always have to do things your way, even though you believe it is the “right” way to do things. Let your lover take charge on this occasion. Try to resist the impulse to have everything under control as a way of managing your anxiety. Learn to trust your partner – they are more competent than you like to believe.

Mindful Relationships

With all the pressures of our day-to-day living, making the time for expressing ourselves in a loving way has become increasingly difficult. In addition, we expect to and believe we know how to have a loving relationship without any training. We don't learn how to negotiate to get our needs met. Sometimes people don't even know what they need. They just believe their partner should meet their needs without having to ask. As a result, we end up creating the same dysfunctional relationship that our parents had or that we had with them.

Dealing with Conflict In Relationships

One thing is certain: conflict will happen. It is a natural and inevitable part of living. No matter how much we might try to avoid it, no matter how uncomfortable we are in dealing with it, conflict will happen all too frequently. So, what do we do? It is actually quite simple. We either effectively manage it, or we deal with the consequences of reacting ineffectively to it or leaving it unresolved.
