How to Recover from “The First Glitch”
Why do some of the most promising relationships often end sooner than we’d like? Whether interacting with a new boss, a new employee or a new romantic interest, we begin most relationships with good intentions and positive expectations. It’s only a matter of time, however, before the “first glitch” happens, causing us to step back and reassess our original feelings.
The first glitch is nobody’s fault but it is a determinative factor in all relationships. If not handled properly, we become overly cautious as the hope and optimism that we first felt begins to fade. There’s good news – that terrifying first glitch can lead to a positive experience.
Dr. Jim Goldstein shows audiences how to transform glitches into opportunities for creating stronger, more authentic relationships. Not only can these experiences restore excitement, they even help us feel better about others than we did before the glitch.
This presentation is overwhelmingly popular with college-age students and with corporate audiences.
How to Handle Difficult People
Are some people in your life just hard to get along with? Does interacting with a particular person zap you of your energy? Do you ever leave a conversation feeling like you just received a small “paper cut?”
Let Dr. Jim Goldstein show you how to transform relationships with difficult people in your life:
- Persistently negative people
- Chronic complainers
- People who are constantly angry
- Uncommunicative types
- Overly critical personalities
With humor, perspective and insight, Dr. Jim Goldstein shows you a unique way to be with all of these difficult people. The transformation that takes place leaves you feeling unscathed and actually uplifted by future interactions with personalities like these.
How to Recover From an Affair
Not in all cultures but certainly in ours, affairs often signal the end of a relationship. Usually, there was a problem with the relationship, upset feelings that weren’t effectively dealt with and the affair is a kind of acting out on those feelings. Even though affairs involve sex, they are more often about unresolved upset and anger. Dr. Goldstein has a different perspective on affairs and helps people heal from them. With his help, affairs can signal a turning point for a couple and chance to create a deeper more authentic and fulfilling relationship once the wounds have healed. It’s not easy but it can be very worthwhile when you tackle forgiveness and work to rebuild trust.
People rarely second-guess assumptions. Does everyone perceive you and your company the way you want to be seen and heard? People make judgments very quickly based on often superficial appearances. In this presentation, Dr. Jim Goldstein has you re-examine your own demand qualities: aspects of your presentation that demand a particular interpretation. Finally, he shows you how to be seen the way you wish to be seen.
Why We Want What We Want
Ever wonder why we want the particular things in our life? While every human being desires things every day, our wants are not arbitrary but are often based on our early experiences and, more importantly, what we made those experiences mean. By understanding how wants are formed we can understand ourselves better as well as the motivations of those around us.
