Dr. John Townsend, author of Boundaries, recently kicked off his latest title, The Entitlement Cure, during the opening of the new Townsend Institute for Leadership and Counseling at Huntington University on August 29 with a full day of activities, speakers, leadership and counseling training. All participants received an advance copy of The Entitlement Cure.
The Townsend Institute will feature Townsend’s Character-Plus-Competency model in counseling and leadership at the private, liberal-arts Christian university located in Huntington, Indiana. He has also assembled several of his colleagues to be Institute Fellows who are bestselling authors such as Ken Blanchard and John Ortberg. The first of its kind, the Townsend Institute offers degree programs based on content from Townsend’s 27 books, writings and teaching. The program, taught personally by Townsend, will be offered onsite at the Huntington and Fort Wayne campuses, as well as online.
In his latest book, The Entitlement Cure: Finding Success in Doing Hard Things the Right Way (Zondervan, October 6, 2015), Dr. John Townsend, New York Times bestselling author of Boundaries, helps readers recognize the problem and hands clear-cut solutions to prompt change and success. Whether readers are living with or working with an entitled person, there is hope in finding a more balanced and productive life for all.
According to Dr. Townsend, The Entitlement Cure is taking a path he calls the “hard way”. The term is about how real success comes to those who face difficult realities, instead of avoiding them. Using a practical, biblical and research-supported approach, the book provides direction and hope for individuals who will, in turn, change the whole. The Entitlement Cure does not single out any generation, but deals with the issue as a multi-generational problem that is shaping our culture.
“There aren’t shortcuts to cure entitlement,” says Dr. Townsend. “It is a path of behaviors and attitudes that undo the negative effect of entitlement, whether in ourselves or in others. The entitled person must learn to diligently make choices that form a habit of doing what is best, rather than what is comfortable, to achieve a worthwhile outcome.”
