People Plan Options

In this podcast, they talk about three options that can help you when it comes to pre-deciding how you will behave:

  1. Personal Manifesto – Creating a “personal manifesto” sets up a code of ethics that helps you pre-decide what you need and want and how to ask for it. (Kathi and Cheri’s manifesto can be viewed here)
  2. Acknowledgment – Acknowledge a pattern and discuss it.  Perhaps the person is willing to change or you can change your reaction to their actions.
  3. Leave – Don’t subject yourself to disrespectful behavior.

Kathi and Cheri run through multiple scenarios to help you pre-plan your responses and help you deal with the overwhelm.

Our new book is NOW AVAILABLE! And only until midnight on December 31, we are offering some amazing freebies. Check out all the details here.

Have you endured the Christmas Party where someone just pushes your buttons and you want to scream? Or the family dinner where Aunt Myrtle points out all the things wrong?   We all have challenging people in our lives.  Sometimes we can be the challenge. This is when a people plan can help. Pre-deciding how we will behave when we are in those challenging situations helps us be the best person we can be. Kathi and Overwhelmed co-author, Cheri Gregory, discuss various situations where a “people plan” can turn challenging events into less overwhelming situations.
