How Heart to Heart Talks Came to Be
When we met in 1976 we had both come from painful, failing relationships. We desperately wanted something different and we were willing to try anything! Our common commitment to use our relationship as an experiment to learn how to keep the love alive and growing is what ultimately led to the development of Heart to Heart Talks.
In the beginning our relationship was strictly romantic (we weren't teachers or coaches, yet) and we used a rudimentary form of these communication practices to get to know one another better and build trust in each other and the relationship. And it worked! Then, as we began to teach together and eventually build a training and seminar business together, we refined and expanded the process to use in our professional partnership.
As our business grew and we hired employees and trained assistants and logistics teams for workshop production, Heart to Heart Talks became a standard practice throughout every part of our personal and professional life, not only with each other, but with everyone we worked with and trained.
What Can You Do With Heart to Heart Talks?
With Heart to Heart Talks, you can:
In your personal relationships, if you've ever wanted to . . .
In your professional relationships, if you've ever wanted to . . .
If you've ever wished you could find the right words to say what you mean and feel heard and understood by others, then this may be the most important thing you'll ever see for creating that experience . . .
And here's why . . .
With the right knowledge and tools, you can join the ranks of others who have transformed their communication and their relationships with a simple, powerful communication practice that can work in as little as 15 minutes.
This program will guide you every step of the way to develop the foundational skill necessary to create the magnificent relationships you truly desire. You will receive step-by-step guidance and practical exercises you can do with your romantic partner, business colleagues, family members and friends.
Heart to Heart Talks are not a conversation, they are a structured one-to-one communication exercise. You will learn and practice four kinds of Heart to Heart Talks:
1. Discovery - for learning more about yourself and your partner
2. Nurturing - for bringing the energy of caring and nurturing to your relationship
3. Clearing - for helping one another to release concerns and fears
4. Affirming - for encouraging one another in your goals and dreams
Heart to Heart Talks offers you a new way to communicate and relate with others. You can have the experience of being heard and understood by the people you love and respect, and you can provide that same experience for your partner and others in your life who are important to you. This online training program will show you how.
Build Trust and Understanding
In the 40 years we've been teaching and coaching people in their relationships, there's one thing we have found over and over again. And that is this - it's the things people can't (or won't) talk about that often ends up destroying their relationships.
It's absolutely essential to be able to talk about things that are hard to talk about if you want your relationships to grow and succeed. The 'hard stuff' isn't always negative, either. For some people, talking about positive feelings of love and affection is very difficult. Yet, relationships need positive expressions of emotion just like flowers need water and sunshine. Without them, they wither and die.
Good communication skills are foundational to successful relationships. Poor communication skills can absolutely destroy relationships.
Unfortunately, good communication doesn't come naturally to most people, especially when there are powerful emotions involved. The good news is that communication skills can be learned, and you can learn them.
