Soulmates Academy helps people build strong relationships & marriages to better manage the intersections of home, work & life.

Relationships impact work...

Marriage and relationship breakdown can have a huge impact on the way we are able to perform at work.  We have all experienced or seen how emotional issues cloud judgement and affect focus.

As we like to say, if you are unhappy or stressed in your life, then you might be bringing more than your 'lunchbox' to work.

'Always on' cultures have a lot to answer for

... and work impacts relationships

High-pressure, long hours, extended travel and time apart take their toll on relationships. Without clear strategies to stay connected and invest in the relationship, couples end up drifting apart and/or becoming vulnerable to attractions outside the relationship.

In a world where there is lots of money, everyone has choices and we are surrounded by lots of "beautifully turned-out" people, staying emotionally connected to your partner is vital for the long-term success of your relationship.

 

- ALL relationships face a similar set of hurdles.  Success comes from being equipped to get over the hurdles -

4 Habits make the difference

Over the last 20+ years, working with countless couples, we've observed that ALL successful relationships exhibit 4 simple, yet fundamental, habits.

On the flip side, every failing relationship we've ever seen, lacks one or more of them.

The habits help us get over the hurdles of frustration that come from Unmet Expectations, Poor Conflict Resolution skills, Trust & Respect Issues, and Poor Communication.

All Successful Relationship exhibit 4 simple habits
Jon & Andrea | TEDxSquareMile | 9 Mar 2019

We can all learn these habits

That was the message we had the privilege of sharing in our recent (9 Mar 2019) TEDx SquareMile talk.

Our 'big idea' is that proactively developing key relationship skills can be the difference between success and failure in long-term relationships. Sitting and waiting until things breakdown before going to counselling is often too little, too late.

Watch the YouTube video here, or read the blog we wrote summarising the key message.

When people start practicing these habits...

Organisations Benefit...

By equipping people to face the inevitable challenges of relationships, they are better able to navigate home/work/life tensions and turn up as their 'best selves' at work.

With less stress to deal with in their personal lives, they are better able to stay focused on the job.  Also, emotionally 'happy' employees tend to take less time off work and to stay in their jobs longer too.

It turns out, investing in people's relationship capability is both socially responsible and financially wise.

Improved emotional wellbeing => better productivity
With the right equipping, relationships thrive

... and Everyone Wins!

Employees enjoy improved wellbeing & more mutually satisfying relationships.

Their children & families benefit from greater stability & reduced emotional & mental health issues too.

Society benefits from reduced family breakdown rates which currently have huge cost implications on tax payers. In 2018, the cost of Family Breakdown in the UK was calculated at £51bn per annum by the think tank, The Relationships Foundation - that's almost half what it costs to run the entire UK National Health Service!

Why we do what we do...

Passionate about People...

Family breakdown is a huge, huge problem across the globe.  It doesn't have to be that way.

Through our own personal experience, and having worked with countless couples over the past couple of decades, we know that adopting a proactive approach to relationships is often the difference between success and failure.
