About the Event

How do you talk about the things that are hard to talk about without making things worse?

I believe every voice and perspective matters. Most people would agree, but when we disagree or get into conflict with our partner, we don't act like it. We yell back and forth both trying to be heard at the same time. We get hurt, angry and defensive trying to prove, “I'm right, you’re wrong and why can't you just see things my way, then we wouldn't have this problem!” In the end you've got two hurt and angry partners just trying to be understood.

So what's the way out? There's a ton of unconscious stuff driving the show that works against us, plus we use a style of conversation that simly doesn't work when triggered or in disagreement so we need another option.

We’ll Cover:

• 1 style of communication that works in normal everyday conversation (we all use it) but when we disagree or get triggered, is completely ineffective and actually it makes things worse!

• 1 alternative style of communication that you can use to replace that ineffective style so that you can disagree productively and create peace and understanding even with differences of opinion.

• The most common mistake and greatest cause of upset that partners with good intentions make that actually escalates conflict.

• 3 false assumptions that we make in conversation that create and escalate conflict.

• 3 cognitive biases plus “the troublesome triad” that fuel conflict.

• 1 simple lesson in neurobiology (Why everything I share here will be instantly forgotten when in conflict) so that you understand what happens in your brain when you get triggered. 

• The unconscious reasons you actually resist empathizing with your partner.

• The essence of the Power Struggle.

• How to create psychological safety for your partner (and what that is anyways!)

• Brene Brown’s “messy middle” that can help us move out of default responses like anger and fight / flight.

• To implement all of this, you'll need to focus on the 4 qualities couples who creates positive outcomes share.
