        Want to improve your relationships?

        Imagine if you could instantly have a better relationship with anyone in your life (partner, boss, employee, child, mother-in-law)…AND THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO CHANGE.

        Don’t believe us yet…listen and find out for yourself.

        1. Episode #17 – The Manual. Most of us have an operating manual that we’ve written that covers how we believe other people SHOULD behave.  This book of rules not only states how they should behave, but also what you’ll make it mean when they don’t follow your manual. 
        2. Episode #18 – Emotional Puberty (Moving from Emotional Childhood To Emotional Adulthood). Emotional childhood is when we are emotionally acting like a child.  It shows up when we don’t take responsibility for how we feel, or when we blame others for how we feel. Emotional adulthood, on the other hand, is all about taking full responsibility.  We take responsibility for our own emotions – happiness, sadness… 
        3. Episode #19 – Setting Boundaries. Boundaries are for when another adult whom you don’t have authority over violates a physical or emotional limit, and it describes what actions you will take.  It’s a clear request of somebody else with a clear consequence of what you will do if it’s violated.  The key here is the consequence is an action you will take.
