To help people achieve personal and professional satisfaction and effectiveness through the teaching and practice of internal control psychology.



People are internally motivated.

Outside events never “make” us do anything.

We are responsible for our behavior.

“Responsibility” is not a negative term.  We are responsible for our success and happiness as well as our difficulties.

We always have some choice about how to behave, even in the most restrictive settings.

Behavior is purposeful.

People are doing the best they can to meet their needs.

When people learn responsible, effective behaviors, they will give up less responsible, less effective behaviors.

When we take responsibility for our lives, our lives are more personally and professionally satisfying.
