I can't even explain how many times I've wanted to throw this book at people and say "OMG read this! It will change your WORLD!" but throwing things, especially books, are typically frowned upon... so I just recommend it instead.
Anyway, read this book, pass on the knowledge, and save the world from whiny people :-)
Better still, is the lesson of how to move the 'players' to an 'empowerment triangle' where you become one (or sometimes more) of the individuals: The Creator, The Challenger or The Coach.
I was apprehensive about the book because my boss insisted everyone read it. Nevertheless, I gave in and was pleasantly surprised to learn how people at work, at home and in other areas of your life try to 'force' you into being one of the unhealthy players.
We also choose to play these unhealthy roles -- or, better yet, choose to play the healthy ones. We become what we allow, and this short read has a very powerful story that we can all implement into our relationships in a way that we and others can interact and become more healthy.
Relevant books to read before or after would be The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch and/or You Are Here by Thich Nhat Hanh.
Our current culture calls on each of us to be Leaders to the best of our abilities and to share ALL of our gifts. Having spent many years myself acting out the roles of Victim, Persecutor and Rescuer, I understand all too well the pain and trauma caused by the Drama Triangle.
TED* – *The Empowerment Dynamic – offers a way to escape the Drama Triangle for good by using simple and powerful tools to stop focusing on the problem and instead, to live in the solution. I believe it has the potential to be both life-changing and business-saving and I highly recommend it.
