Great relationships don't just happen...

... they are built on purpose.

4 simple habits is all it takes...
  • That's the lesson from our 20+ years' experience of working with countless couples... every successful couple-relationship has mastered 4 simple habits. Every failing relationship we've ever seen has lacked one or more of them.
  • The great news is that we can all develop these habits.
  • Watch our TEDx talk here...

WHY do these habits make a difference?

  • We each hold an "Emotional Bank Account" for every one of our relationships.
  • Without the 4 habits, we keep doing things that feel like "withdrawals" from the account, our accounts drain, and our relationships experience a lot of stress and strain.
  • Developing and practicing these 4 habits allows us to keep our Emotional Bank Accounts topped up and our relationships feeling "sweet".
WHAT do the habits look like in practice?

Habit #1 BE CURIOUS, not critical will help you get over the hurdle of frustrations that can come from unmet expectations. We're all wired differently.  Improving your understanding of each other allows you to play to your respective strengths, rather than waste time & energy criticising differences.

Habit #2 BE CAREFUL, not crushing will help you get over the hurdle of poor conflict resolution approaches and the damage they can cause in relationships.  You can do this by learning how to "show up" better, manage conflict effectively and come out stronger together.

Habit #3 ASK, don't assume will help you get over the hurdle of mistrust and dis-respect that can creep into relationships. You do this by learning how to get good at having those courageous conversations where you ask and discuss, rather than assume and stereotype.

Habit #4 CONNECT, before you correct will help you get better at communicating real value and appreciation, and hold back on that need to give "constructive feedback" that so many of us are all too good at! You do this by learning how to communicate value and show appreciation in ways that mean the most to the people you care about.

"I found Jon and Andrea's workshop particularly useful in finding uniquely different ways to tackle difficult subjects in relationships. Over the 20 or so years that they have been mastering their skills, they also have developed a helpful way of defining personalities and explaining how we can understand each other better."
