by Sarah H. Elliston.

Know More

The funny thing is that Sarah Elliston never realized she was “a difficult person,” –someone who harangued people until she got her way, threw snip fits and temper tantrums, talked over her bosses and pointed out what she thought were their misconceptions. In her family, where she felt bullied, the only way she knew how to get someone’s attention and approval was to voice her opinion–and loudly! Without standing her ground, how could she do what she thought was best for herself and everyone else around her. She wasn’t intentionally mean-spirited. She was just trying to do what she thought was RIGHT!

Until a kind, but firm, boss woke her up! With great compassion, and strength, her boss pointed out that her actions had consequences. That in being “difficult,” she was not only disrupting the office camaraderie and production, but impeding her own professional advancement.

That’s the beginning of Sarah’s transformation— when she started on the journey to leave behind the difficult person, and become the woman who teaches others how to deal with difficult people. Sarah “Sam” Elliston is now bringing forth her vital manual on how to awaken the challenging personality, and change both the relationship and the environment with her new book Dealing with Difficult People; Lessons Learned from a Difficult Person.

Today, Elliston is a highly successful workshop leader and trainer, who offers wisdom learned the hard way–and through rigorous study and certification in many areas of professional training that aid her in her work — Values Realization, Parent Effectiveness Training and Reality Therapy. She is a faculty member of the William Glasser Institute. Glasser is an internationally recognized psychiatrist and developer of Reality Therapy, a method of psychotherapy that teaches people they have a choice in how they choose to behave.




A Word from the Author

Author Sarah Elliston pictureWhen I discovered that people had been finding me difficult for most of my life, I was stunned. I wondered why nobody had ever told me to stop doing what I was doing.

I explored what is considered difficult and realized what I thought is outspoken is not an excuse for rudeness and being assertive can be seen as a lack of respect. What I did without thinking as easily as breathing, others found frustrating and aggravating.

And I still wondered why I hadn’t been told before.

I wrote this book to help others talk to the people like me in their lives. The book contains a little about me and my experience and then a number of exercises and strategies for preparing to talk to a difficult person. I hope readers learn that difficult people are unaware of their behavior and when its impact is identified, and when our reaction is listened to we can change.

There are dialogues in the book demonstrating possible conversations and an entire section on preparing for the reader’s conversation. Difficult people can change if the reader can let go of seeing us as the enemy and begin to be in our corner.

Reflections from The White Tunnel

by Phil Olley

Know More

On 18 March 1999, Phil Olley woke up on a pavement, surrounded by paramedics.

He had died. And been brought back to life.

He remembers having the full white-tunnel experience.

This book is the connection between that experience and the work he has done ever since; working with people to improve their level of success in business, in their careers, and in every aspect of their life.

The book is designed for those who

– want to change the way they are living and the results they are getting.

– believe there’s got to be a better way of living than what they are currently doing.

– are aware there’s an untapped potential they want to uncover in their own lives.

– are imaginative, creative, intelligent enough to realise that growth is essential, change is essential, and that it’s no good settling for a life way below that which you are truly capable of.

It’s also for those who are fascinated by the near-death experience and who want to draw lessons and insights from such events, in the search to understand their significance and make sense of life.




A Word from the Author

author phil olley picture Being dead wasn’t something I ever contemplated but waking up on the pavement that fateful day in August, following a total shut down of my body and being officially dead gave me a chance to see everything that I hadn’t yet achieved and what my life could be. In my White Tunnel moment I had total clarity. It’s taken me years to put it together but here in this book I’ll show you how you too can change your life completely for the better.

I wanted to create the 10 Fulfilments that I could live my life by and know that at no time would I ever have a white tunnel moment again and have regrets.
