 Discover The Power and Grace Between Nasty and Nice with Scott Cluthe when he talks with John Friel, Ph.D., live Thursday at 7 PM CST. John was originally scheduled a few weeks ago.

Whether interacting in political arenas or playgrounds, corporations or classrooms, boardrooms or bedrooms, we as a nation have fueled an epidemic of bad behavior. From political correctness agendas to the faux self-esteem movement, from absent parents to helicopter parents, many adults developed extremely unhealthy ways of approaching the natural conflicts in our daily lives. With a distorted worldview that’s black-and-white, all or nothing, too many people react in extremes–they either blow up or rage (the nasty bully) or let others walk all over them (the nice pushover).

John C. Friel, Ph.D., is an internationally recognized author and speaker as well as a skilled clinician. He is a psychologist in private practice St. Paul, Minnesota, and Reno, Nevada

 John and Linda Friel explain that power without graciousness results in bullying and nastiness. Graciousness without power results in being a doormat. However, power tempered with graciousness elevates us beyond our purely animalistic selves—it produces competence, gratitude, humility, and effectiveness, attributes that are sorely lacking in today’s world where entitlement, narcissism, and incivility reign supreme.
