From Nice Guy to Integrated Male

“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.

One-Day Workshop

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.

Cures: How Do We Become Integrated Men?

The answer is really quite simple – be you!
  • The you that you were at conception, at birth, right now.
  • The you without all the inherited layers of shame, fear, and anxiety.
  • The you without all of the learned survival and defense mechanism.
  • The you without all of the inaccurately internalized beliefs about your worth, lovableness, and place in this world.
In the afternoon of the one-day workshop, Dr. Glover and Connor will explore how to break free from the Nice Guy Syndrome and become an Integrated Male. We will explore letting go of "covert contracts," developing integrity and authenticity, making your needs a priority, developing safe support systems, and connecting with men.

peter johnson"Thank you for who you are! Your workshop changed my life. Like a comet whose orbit was jarred slightly, my path took whole new directions as a result of that day. Awesome new vistas are now mine as a result. I think about you and the training often.

I've done a lot of personal growth workshops and a lot of therapy over the years, and I rank you as "a force of nature." Your work is fabulous and much needed. 95% of the time, I'm now the man I want to be; in love, in work, in energy and spirit. My path now makes itself clear; all I have to do is pay attention. Thank you!"

Peter Johnson, CA

"I signed up for Dr. Glover’s Total Personal Integration (TPI) workshop unsure if it would be a waste of time. He portrays it as “life changing” but I wasn’t sure I would get anything out of it. I think of myself as a normal guy who has had a few problems with women, relationships and sex. Not that I’ve taken the workshop, I can tell you that it was everything Dr. Glover said it would be. It was life changing for me. I discovered things about myself, issues that have been hidden for forty years. Women haven’t been my problem. My deepest beliefs about myself are the problem. Now I can deal with those issues. That’s life changing. If you have any reservation please make the effort to attend any of Dr. Glover’s seminars or workshops. You won’t be disappointed."

mine 1"The workshop was in a word; Fantastic. Dr. Glover takes the time to connect with each member in such a way that you feel the workshop is customized specifically for you.  He has a command of many different life issues and he makes them easy to understand. During the course of the day, you can feel the positive energy that’s generated from spending time with other men who are working to improve their lives. I came away with the new skills and techniques I can use to move to higher consciousness. Thank you."

"The TPI Workshop is having a snowball effect on my life and the snowball is working in my favor for a change. Within one week of implementing what I learned in the workshop, I have seen meaningful changes in my life that will last a lifetime. The TPI Workshop is life-changing and it far exceeded my expectations!"

Jeff Moore, Portland, OR

brian 1"I have to say the TPI weekend was one of the most rewarding, fulfilling, life altering weekends I've had in decades. I've been to numerous personal growth seminars and this one definitely ranks up at the top of them. It was very relaxing, action packed, fun, and jammed with tons of information that I'll use for the rest of my 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!!!"

“Dr Glover has great insight into the masculine mind and habits. If you have a problem being assertive, as I had, or a myriad of other things keeping you from success, I would highly recommend, No More Mr Nice Guy. Even greater still, attending one of his workshops and seeing that what he teaches is for real and applicable to every man.”

JAFPhoto"I recently attended a TPI (Total Personal Integration) weekend workshop with Dr. Robert Glover. The workshop has been incredibly valuable to me and was certainly worth the time and money. 

I had read Dr. Glover's book several years prior, but having an intensive weekend to explore the "Nice Guy" concepts in depth, in person and in community with 7 other men really allowed me to "get it" on a deep personal level. Most importantly, my life has changed! In my daily life I am now more honest, more courageous, more confident and better able to sooth my anxiety without resorting to booze or numbing activities.

Overall, I am happier and the future looks brighter to me. Along with the workshop, Dr. Glover makes a series of podcasts available to attendees. I have found the podcasts to be very helpful in focusing and reviewing the concepts I explored at the workshop. I heartily recommend the TPI workshop to any man wanting to improve his life."

“After taking Dr. Glover's TPI Workshop I was able to have significant breakthroughs in my personal  and professional life. Get out of your comfort zone, do what makes you feel anxious, and go to one of his workshops!”
