“Being integrated means being able to accept all aspects of one’s self. An integrated man is able to embrace everything that makes him unique: his power, his assertiveness, his courage, and his passion, as well as his imperfections, his mistakes, and his dark side.” Dr. Robert Glover, No More Mr. Nice Guy
Recovery from the Nice Guy Syndrome – any kind of recovery – is not about becoming a better man or getting rid of anything. Most of us have been trying to do both since childhood. Recovery is about becoming more “you.”
You don’t have to become a better you to be liked, be loved, get your needs met, or have a good life. You just have to be you. It is actually all the things that you have tried to become or tried to eliminate or hide about you that have gotten in your way all of these years.
This workshop will help you rediscover, accept, embrace, love – and be – you.
Causes: Why Did We Become Nice Guys?
In the morning of the one-day workshop, Dr. Glover and Connor will explore how a boy turns into a Nice Guy. We will explore family (absence of fathers, dominance of mothers, abandonment, family fusion, addiction, codependency) and social influences (school, church, media, lack of masculine initiation) on the development of the Nice Guy syndrome in young boys.
By gaining a deeper understanding of why we believed we had to become what other people expected us to be and hide anything that might lead to rejection, recovering Nice Guys can work to create a new road map for living a successful, fulfilling life.

In particular, I found the masculine and feminine chart especially life altering. I have the chart saved in my blackberry, I plastered on my wall at home in my office, and have it with me wherever I go. I even refer to it when I'm on dates! This one topic alone has changed the way I look at my life, the way I see women, and my relationship with women.
Besides having a mind blowing weekend of information, I also met a great group of guys who I intend to stay in touch with for years to come. The amazing seminar is one thing, but no amount of materialism or money can replace the relationships and friendships formed during this weekend. Oh, I almost forgot to mention spending an awesome weekend in the sun in Puerto Vallarta was also a huge bonus.
I totally recommend this weekend to anyone who is interested in improving their lives, personal growth, forming great new friendships that can last a lifetime, and taking their life to the next level. I feel like a completely new person and plan to live my life in a way I never dreamed of thanks to the TPI weekend. Thanks again!!!"Brian Young, Toronto, Canada
