Transactional Analysis (TA) is a psychological approach to human behaviour. It offers a framework of concepts which fit together to help us understand what drives us. As individuals, we can apply these concepts to improve our confidence, our communication skills and to enhance relationships. Once we understand how we get into repeating patterns of behaviour which do not serve us well, we can work out strategies to break the cycle and develop richer, rewarding relationships.
TA has theories for individual development, and also some ideas on group dynamics which can be applied to teams, departments and whole companies too. These concepts help us to understand the dynamics between us and other people - starting with what is going on inside us - and why?
