Do You Suffer from The Should Syndrome? Click here to find out. Download Worksheets


Too many of us operate on autopilot, moving through our days and weeks reacting to situations or doing what we think we’re supposed to do, without taking into consideration our own goals and values. We allow our Shoulds—the expectations we have of ourselves and others—to make our decisions for us.

Modeled after best-selling management books such as Who Moved My Cheese and The One Minute Manager, The Should Syndrome uses a fictional narrative to teach a process for discovering and embracing your true self and breaking free from the Shoulds that get in the way of living the life you want.
