The danger of
An in-depth course about the power of expectations. How to effectively set and communicate them for a successful outcome for everyone involved.
What you can expect in this course
Expectations are a major cause of stress, anxiety, miscommunication and loss of trust and respect in families. When we have expectations of others we don’t often help them to fully understand how to meet them.
This can cause the other person to become resentful, fearful, disengaged, and frustrated. This is especially true with our children. They don’t know why it is important that they help out around the house, make their bed, clean up the dishes or their rooms. It comes across as a waste of time and is not important to them. But there is another danger and that is in not meeting their own expectations of themselves in their sport or academic performance.
In this course we go in-depth as to the dangers and pitfalls of expectations. We will discuss the issues they can cause in relationships, and the damage to a person’s self esteem when expectations are unrealistic and unmet.
Worksheets will be provided for you to use in an exercise where we will deep dive in to the expectations you have with yourself and other people in your life. This course will help you to learn to more effectively set, manage, and communicate your expectations. This will help to keep, or earn trust and respect in order to maintain, or build healthier relationships with others.
