We Are All Controlling People

I’ve just posted another article to my In Control blog. The article is here: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/in-control/201702/controlling-people. In this article I explain why even having a noncontrolling attitude is a control process. I consider an interaction between a staff member and a manager if a manager thinks staff should solve their own problems but the staff member wants the manager to solve the problem. Thinking about people as controllers can provide a helpful perspective to make relationships more harmonious and satisfying. I also mention the book I’ve written with my good friend and colleague Rick Marken that is also called “Controlling People”. Anyone interested in these ideas will find lots of helpful information in this book.
