Hurry Up

 

Explanations > Motivation > Kahler's drivers > Hurry up

Imperative | Identification | Benefits | Problems | Treatment | So what?

 

This is one of the five drivers originally identified in the field of Transactional Analysis by Taibi Kahler. Here are some simple and useful notes on it.

Imperative

  • Go faster. Whatever I am doing, it's not  being done quickly enough.
  • So much to do, so little time.

Identification

  • Enthusiastic and action-oriented.
  • Many things on the go at once. Often juggling several quite different activities.
  • Time language, using words like 'now', 'schedule', 'timely' and so on.
  • Complaints that there is not enough time.
  • Talking quickly and checking the clock frequently.
  • Impatient (watch for tapping fingers and huffing).
  • May explode into anger if held up.

Benefits

  • When given work delivers it quickly.
  • Good focus on output and delivery (when not combined with 'try hard').

Problems

  • Fretting over having 'nothing to do'.
  • Speed over accuracy.
  • Taking on too much and then complaining
  • Hassling others to do things before they are ready.

Treatment

  • Thank them for their time.
  • Ensure they think before they act.
  • Help them to 'be' without 'doing'. Get them to sit quietly and appreciate a single moment.

So what?

Recognize these drivers in yourself and others and treat them accordingly.
