The Act and the Real You: Preferences and Necessities in Becoming Anything.
Hungerford, Curtiss R.
The Ehrhardt Training Seminar (E.S.T.) program is but one example of a self-help technique based on the premise that people will improve their personal lives and professional effectiveness to the extent that they can "break through the act" to discern the real self which is full of capacity and power when released from fear and constraint. Many adults feel they must downgrade the importance of acting out in accordance with consciously constructed values and objectives; however, they need to be aware of the difference between the act and the real person at all times. Individuals must operate according to both preferences and necessities of role demands. The working administrator or manager must find the balance between realism and idealism, and contribute to the positive growth of the individual and to the organization as well. (JAC)
