     Are you willing to do what is required to improve something about your life? Are you willing to devote time to learning and practicing skills to improve what you are good at and recognize and improve what you are not good at? If you are serious about doing something better that's great. The underlying habits of relationship and interaction, patience, optimism, self esteem, emotional control and self regulation can be improved.


To be good at or improve anything we need


  • Knowledge and skill

  • Methodology for skill development / practice, Realization of the need to improve through formal intentional learning

  • Belief in self, self efficacy

  • Support


     We need to intentionally and deliberately practice how we interact, perceive and react to emotional stimulus, communicate and support each other. The greatest contributing factor to success and happiness is how we learn to relate and interact with each other’s and ourselves. I’m talking about the knowledge of relationship and interaction with others and with ourselves. How we deal with what others say about us and to us. How we handle disagreement, opposing opinions and judgement. How we deal with what our inner voice says about us, confusion within ourselves, mistakes and failure. How we understand our emotions and use them as the tools that they are and not for over reactiveness. How we support and motivate each other. How we learn to self-regulate ourselves, to be wrong and correct our thoughts emotions and behaviors. It’s this knowledge of relationship that allows for happiness.

     Through frequent conversations on important topics we create the underlying habits of success and happiness, patience, optimism, self esteem, emotional control and self regulation. No matter how smart or talented a person is, me, you, or your children, without the ability to relate to ourselves and others, success and happiness will be limited. It is through these interactive experiential relationship skills that success and happiness is propagated. . Over time we will create habits improving thinking, emotions and behaviors. It is in habit that real change occurs

          Practice is the only way that something gets better or improves. Yet the most important contributor to success and happiness these relationship/ interaction skills we fail  to practice or even establish programs that offer families and individuals and youth a means to learn and develop these skills. We need to intentionally and deliberately practice how we interact, perceive and react to emotional stimulus, communicate and support each other.

     I find it unacceptable that we don’t have enough programs that make this knowledge and skill available to families and individuals. That’s why I developed the program and workbook, Conversations We All Should Have. If you want to challenge yourself. If you know that hard work is the only way to acquire anything of value and put your ego aside then you will benefit from the course. 

    Research has proven repeatedly that the ability to control emotional and cognitive impulses (recognizing impulse, cause and effect), is an extremely strong indicator of short-term and long-term success, academic and social. Why not increase your knowledge and skills in relationship development. If you would like more information please contact me through the contact page.

 Please contact me to discuss the program prior to purchasing. It would be a pleasure to speak with you.
