I boldly connected with a co-worker in a way I hadn't before. That was some vulnerable stuff, got my heart beating fast. I've been a bit more "curious" at work too - to try to understand people. The mindfulness lesson on dealing with the critic was superb.
I need to stop being a pushover and people-pleaser. After watching the videos I started saying No and looking after myself before the needs of others - it made me feel much better.
Excellent course. I listened to the podcast and identified the type of nice guy was. I am a lot more mindful of when I am avoiding or judging. A concrete action occurred the other day when a colleague publicly called me out on something. I respectfully asked her to stop and told her we would sort it out later. I didn’t overreact or be too aggressive but stood my ground. I felt a little wired after and self conscious. I have been honest with my partner about what l am doing and asked her to call me out when she notices me being dishonest. Doing a couple of things so far - taking the hard road -has made me feel good and I like feeling good- Each small success builds on the previous one as l discover that if l am honest about a mistake or a feeling that the world doesn’t end.
I'd actually not realised that I had nice guy syndrome until accidentally viewing this course and a early podcast episode. Being exposed to and relating to the pitfalls of this condition gave a sense of hope. The main insights you had about myself in doing this course? That I'm quite severely socially dishonest and that self-esteem can be built through honesty at an internal level. Since taking the course, I've started to express myself a bit more honestly at work
This course is designed to introduce Nice Guys and people pleasers into a pathway to become more confident and socially connected.
Nice Guy Syndrome (aka people pleasing) is where you are stuck in a trap of being "nice" because of an unhelpful psychological mindset and behavioural patterns that became a strategy when you were younger to avoid rejection, disapproval and social pain. After many years of using this strategy you lost your sense of healthy masculinity, assertivness, and inner confidence.
This course is for good guys who feel they are holding back out of fear.
The world needs more nice people, but these people must also be genuine and capable of powerful masculinity as well, or otherwise they just become doormats who don't contribute.
This course is designed by Dan Munro, a former Nice Guy (now in recovery) who is now a world-renowned Confidence Coach, author and Nice Guy Recovery Expert. He spent 25 years being a Nice Guy people-pleaser, and knows exactly how you feel.
