Ep. 99: Is This Keeping You From a Happier Marriage?
Manage episode 358440103 series 2913507
Curious about the #1 issue I work on with my coaching clients? I haven’t seen anyone else talking about this publicly, and yet it is something that can make the biggest difference between flourishing in your marriage or staying stuck (and having arguments over and over again).
In this episode, I am giving you the essential tools to get what you need from your spouse in the most productive and healthy way. Tune in if you are done with the criticizing and defensiveness from your spouse, and instead desire to listen openly to each other about issues, continue having conversations together, and create greater happiness in your marriage.
In this episode, you’ll hear:
The role of defensiveness in your marriage (and what defensiveness can lead to)
What a “soft start-up” is and why this is crucial in any marriage to get results
How to start difficult conversations with your spouse so they actually want to continue talking instead of getting defensive and critical
Guidelines to follow when having these hard conversations
What research says about the link between conflict discussions and divorce
Specific examples of how to approach your spouse when experiencing marriage issues
