Please Me Driver (Transactional Analysis)

Are You A Doormat?

Quite often the Please Me driver will lead you to over-anticipate other peoples’ needs. Even when they haven’t asked you to do something for them! It can also bring out an unpleasant side to your character.

And managers who have this driver showing up whilst being coached often find it difficult to delegate.

When I’ve explained the driver, I’ll leave you with a helpful permission to get you through these behaviours.

Please let me know how you get on.
