If so, Becoming a Genuine Giver will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve your goal.Relationships are central to our very being-our survival depends on them. The capacity to build relationships is the key to personal happiness and career success. Relationships are a matter of give and take, but not all giving and taking is equally healthy or effective. Representing an original scholarly synthesis of developmental, interpersonal, and social psychology, this penetrating book argues the best way to have healthy relationships is to move toward becoming a Genuine Giver: a person who gives to others joyfully in a sincere, non-manipulative manner. This requires a person to identify and overcome specific relationship barriers. You can identify your barriers and growth opportunities through the powerful Interpersonal Motivation Scale(TM), which defines nine types of taking and giving with varying consequences for relationships. Following that, you can develop an action plan for overcoming barriers, using a variety of tools, worksheets, and suggestions included in the book.
