 Building Intentional Relationships

Relationships are the cornerstone of every aspect of our life, from our family, our friends, our colleagues at work and most importantly, your relationship with self.  Essentially, every relationship is a mirror for the relationship you have with self.  In the same way that that the clouds are reflected in the water.   

How do you hold yoursel in your relationship with the world around you?


   Over the course of 10 weeks, we will work together around the following topics:  


       ♦    Committment

       ♦    Communication

       ♦    Accountability

       ♦    Feedback and Speech Acts

       ♦    Having Difficult Conversations

       ♦    Creating Intenional Relationships

       ♦    Personal Boundaries

       ♦    Crystal Ball Trap

       ♦    Forgiveness


    Creating intional relationships is about being clear within yourself as to what kind of relationship you seek to create with others.  In that clarity you get to begin creating that with yourself first and in turn it will show up in your life.  It is being clear that healthy solid relationships are comprised of (1) Trust; (2) Communication and (3) Committment.  It is learning by working with a coach how you show up in a relationship and owning your role in that relationship.  We have more power than we realize in creating the relationships that we want to create.  We cannot ever control how others are but we can control ourself and how we choose to be in relationship.  You will be clear in making choices in relationships in the future.  You will be clear on the values that you hold and holding boundaries around those values.

    You will find peace within yourself in knowing that it all starts from within you and you have the ability to create the relationships that you desire in your life.

    Take step one and begin with you first.  You deserve it!!!
