Hurry Up Driver (Transactional Analysis)

Is Relaxation A Waste of Time?

Did you see my recent video introducing the the Drivers Theory from Transactional Analysis? If you did, you’ll know that I’m doing a series of five videos explaining how the Drivers can affect your behaviour (which in turn can have unfortunate knock-on effects in your life, business and personal relationships).

And in these videos, I’m also giving you some actionable tips about how to deal with the ones that could be causing your problems.

Last week we covered the Try Hard Driver. This week, we’re exploring the Hurry Up Driver.

Some people have all five Drivers, and some will have only one or two.

If you recognise your behaviour is affected by the Hurry Up Driver – or indeed any of the Drivers you see as we go through the series – and it’s causing you problems, please get in touch. I may be able to give you more in-depth help.

Follow me on social media for details of the next video in the series.

Best wishes!



I enjoyed working with Julia. She had ideas at the start of each session but always went with the flow of the sessions if needs be. I like the way she introduced some useful models, but never felt they were being shoe-horned in. I can use them in my own tool box as a manager. Sharing her own experiences and weaknesses was helpful and appropriate. Ken Livingstone, Director of Movement Sustainability, YMCA England
