From Doormat to Direct: How To Ask for What You Want

04.13.2017 by Dr Bob Wright

  You’re at a restaurant you’ve been hearing about for weeks. You’re excited to try the food. The atmosphere is nice; you’re company is delightful. You order and request they leave the green peppers out of your dish (blech). The server doesn’t write down your order. He seems harried. Out comes your food, steaming hot, […]

How To Be Happy (Really!)

How To Be Happy (Really!)

04.06.2017 by Dr Judith Wright

  When I was younger, I was overweight. I longed to be thin. I thought that if I could just get skinnier, I’d be happy. If I could just get the body I wanted, I’d be desirable. I’d feel great and confident. So I dieted. I lost the weight. I worked hard at it. I […]

Coworker Conflict: How To Productively Deal with Disagreement

03.29.2017 by Dr Bob Wright

  “Call out culture” is becoming more common. People used to pussyfoot around, avoiding saying how they really felt under the veil of “politeness.” They might have been passive aggressive about it…or they might have suppressed it and exploded later.

Parenting & Fulfillment: Embracing the “Being” of Parenthood

03.15.2017 by Gertrude Lyons

  What does it really mean to be a mother or a father? What is the true definition of these roles? Can we still nurture and give life, even if we aren’t parents in the traditional sense? Do we need to put our own personal growth on hold while we’re nurturing our children? It’s no […]

In Honor of the Feminine: International Women’s Day

In Honor of the Feminine: International Women’s Day

03.08.2017 by Dr Judith Wright

Today I salute all women and the feminine values that matter more than ever in our world. One of the biggest challenges in honoring the feminine is that it sometimes speaks in a whisper, not a roar – like listening to the silence at a loud sporting event immediately after the score. As I woke up this morning […]

Find Your Strengths to Get Ahead at Work

02.23.2017 by Dr Judith Wright

  We all have skills, right? I bet you can probably list them right off your resume. You might think I mean typing or data entry or understanding HTML—and sure, those certainly are skills, but they’re not what really makes you shine. I’m not even talking about the things you studied in school or even […]

Finding Happiness as a Mother

02.16.2017 by Gertrude Lyons

At Wright, we like to focus on the age-old saying, “If mama isn’t happy, nobody’s happy!” When I was a graduate student at Wright Graduate University, I wrote my dissertation on Expanding Mothering: Raising a Woman’s Awareness of the Opportunities for Personal and Psychosocial Growth and Development in Mothering—A Curriculum Evaluation Study.

Family Relationships: Why is Honest Talk on Family Off Limits?

02.08.2017 by Dr Judith Wright

  Do you cringe when someone brings up your family? Was your mother a saint? Was your father your hero? Do you hate the thought of “going there” when people ask you questions about your family? When it comes to working on our personal growth, figuring out our baggage, and resolving the things holding us […]
