Signs of a Cult

Posted by Jody Urquhart on Wed, Apr 03, 2013 @ 12:35 PM

Eight years ago I took a personal development course that utilized techniques that bordered on those of a cult.

On the first day (after you sign up for the course and they have your money ($500 plus) )they start to outline for you some of the rules of engagement.

The rules seemed normal enough: show up on time, participate, don't text or take emails.  However the execution of the rules bordered on embarrassing and belittling.

Once we entered the room the motivational personal development speaker admonished a couple of people who walked in a few minutes late. She accused them of never truly taking their life commitments seriously.
The seminar leader shrugged off their excuses like traffic, bad weather and more exclaiming that if you are really committed you would be on time.

At the beginning of the seminar we all had to stand and take an oath to be on time. I make time comitments all the time, but I don't need to stand and take an oath to ensure my compliance.
