Nice vs. Kind Masterclass

Kind is Powerful. Nice is Destructive. 

Do you wish you could stop the destructive behaviors in your life that are harming your relationships and creating disconnection from those you love? It's crazy because most of us were taught our whole lives to "Be nice" and not how to be lovingly authentic. Nice is one of the sneakiest emotions. It's so sneaky because it masquerades as Kindness without us even being aware that we are engaging in destructive habits. It's time to get rid of nice and turn authentic loving kindness Into Your Superpower.

"I am learning so much about myself and my true emotions. At the beginning I didn’t know that just two simple words Nice vs Kind, would bring up so much emotion and disturb my comfort zone. I’m so in love with this 21 day course. Now I understand why you say, "I’m a recovering nice guy." It will be a life time program"

What people are saying about the Masterclass


Patty E.

"The world needs this! I used to think emotions were either bad or good. Now I know that every emotion serves a purpose. Understanding the difference between authentic and counterfeit emotions is helping me grow in ways I never imagined. This is life-changing"!"

Christina J.

"I am finding awesome opportunities at least once a day to share about the things I have been learning.  When you truly love and care for someone, you are kind, not sugarcoated nice. You make choices that are kind to yourself, and kind to them- not just what feels comfortable or good in the moment. I truly believe that the work Curtis is doing is vitally important to helping us.” 

Rob A.

"Almost immediately I started to recognize things and behaviors that were the opposite of what I had intended. Being taught to be nice my whole life and not realizing that it was damaging was eye-opening. Your statement that nice has an expectation or "you owe me," attached to it and kind doesn't was so helpful."

Zack M.

"The "Nice vs. Kind" master class quite literally changed my life. I was shocked in the beginning at how much of the content related to me as an individual. I felt a great need to change numerous "nice" behaviors in my life. The group in this course was incredible. I felt empowered by the examples around me. As we opened to vulnerability and shared experiences, I felt so encouraged that change is possible, even in just three weeks. This course introduced me to my authentic self."

Diantha L.

“If you feel consistently drained by your relationships, then this course is for you. Curtis walks you through setting appropriate boundaries, while aligning yourself with your higher values in your relationships. His step-by-step and day-by-day group approach will help retrain your brain to achieve what you really crave--lasting, authenitc, and synergizing connections with the people around you! It's a lot of work, but definitely worth all of the effort I spent. Plus, I've made amazing friendships with others who also desire to be kind!”

This class was very well thought out and put together. I'm so grateful for the insight I gained from this class. I especially loved how it was set up. Having virtual chats twice a week to make sure everyone is on the same page and to answer our questions was a great idea. Having a couple people to check in with each day and discuss the challenges and insights we are having was so helpful. Having the specific things we have to do each day was so helpful to help us remember what we're working on to give us more opportunities to practice and make these skills a habit in our lives. This class will be so helpful for so many people! It's so helpful in teaching us how to connect with others better and set and implement healthy boundaries.
