Description: Rubin reveals the one simple question that will transform what you do at home, at work, and in life. In her opinion the seemingly dry question "How do I respond to expectations?" helps us gain explosive self-knowledge. Based on their answer, people fit into four tendencies: Upholders, Questioners, Obligers, and Rebels. Knowing your "tendency" will help you get happier, healthier, more productive, and more creative.

A 15-minute guided meditation (optional) concludes the program.

Copies are available to check out at the Library.
