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.



Julia is a wonderful coaching supervisor. She has been a valuable resource on my coaching journey. Julia is incredibly generous in sharing her ideas, thoughts and resources. She also provides a wise sounding board and has provided just the right balance of challenge and support. I would highly recommend Julia as a coaching supervisor for both experienced and inexperienced coaches. Liz Scott, NewScott Coaching, Coach and Facilitator
