or (for you as an individual, if your partner is hesitant)
Imagine that we were visiting over a cup of coffee and I told you that I had decided to become a professional golfer (I’ve golfed a total of about 6 rounds in my life).
You’d probably tell me that I was *%&#$! nuts. And after that wise statement, you’d likely encourage me to go find the finest coach that money could buy.
Professional coaching has always been a necessity for professional athletes. It is also increasingly popular among professional business people world-wide, and is becoming hugely popular for individuals in regard to their own personal excellence. It works equally well, maybe even more powerfully for couples!
Coaching is a solution-focused, forward-oriented, success-producing process based on exploration, learning and action. It is a process where you are encouraged, guided, and challenged to look within yourself to find solutions, to see your own potential, and to discover actions required for you to move forward toward greater success.
Coaching is the bridge that gets you from where you are to where you want to be. It is a powerful and valuable process that provides an incredible return on investment of time and money.
Consider these questions:
- How can this coaching process be effective in creating a successful, loving, respectful relationship with your life-partner?
- What are some of the other benefits (parenting, career, community) of having a stimulating, fulfilling, passionate relationship at home?
So, what’s going on in your career as a professional life-partner? Frankly, it’s probably the most important role you will ever have.
Do you experience some of these?
- Frustration, defensiveness, or anger
- Arguments and conflicts – or silence
- Questionable honesty which affects trust
- Ineffective communication
- Lack of intimacy
- Insufficient or absence of romance, passion, and play
Would you like to eliminate that “guck”, and improve, enhance, and grow your relationship?
We are on the leading-edge with Couple’s Coaching. It works exactly the same as executive coaching except that you and your partner work with the two of us, usually by phone, or join us for a Relationship Recharge Get-away Retreat. This two-on-two approach is exceptionally powerful for you.
To get you started, we invite you to download and complete this Relationship Audit to determine what you want in your relationship. Or download and complete this Relationship Self Check to gain a snapshot of the quality of your relationship now.
Here’s what others say:
“Our thanks to you for helping us get our marriage back on a sound footing. We thought we had insurmountable problems and were so relieved to find out we were “Not Broken” after all. We just had a communication problem – we never heard what each other was saying, only what we thought was being said. We learned so much about ourselves and each other and will definitely do this again.”
-Irene & Rick Wurster
If your partner is hesitant or resistant to the idea of coaching, you can make huge advancements by investing in relationship coaching on your own. As you make improvements and changes and begin to feel better about your relationship, your partner may say, “Something changing, and I want to be a part of it.” He/She may then be willing to investigate this further.
What happens? We encourage, guide, and challenge you to:
- discover your vision, values, and goals as a couple
- look within yourselves to find solutions that feel good and make sense
- feel your potential as it expands
- discover actions required and commit to do what you say you’re going to do
- move your relationship forward toward greater happiness and success.
Through discussions, questions, exercises, and brainstorming, we encourage you, and hold you accountable to enhancing your relationship with the person who likely is the most significant person in your life.
The result for you is a dynamic, respectful, charismatic, and romantic “conscious relationship”. Do you think this would affect your results in your family, friends, career, and community?
Absolutely it will. And as we continue to meet over the months, you’ll experience immense growth with every visit and every new commitment you make to yourself and your partner.
The point is this: You choose the results in your relationship anyway, so why not choose to make your relationship fervent, fascinating, and fun?
Coaching is usually done by phone. It allows you to be in your own environment. And it saves you time, which seems to be one of the most valuable commodities anymore.
Or if you choose, Relationship Recharge Get-away Retreat may be for you. You come to our home, Ohlers’ Acres, a small country B&B. We are just one hour west of Edmonton, AB. It is a quiet, peaceful, country setting which is very conducive to honest and creative thoughts and discussions. Our location also gives you the benefit of the travel time to enjoy being together, and to discuss your commitments.
This is our personal invitation for you to call us now at 780-785-9479 or 780-785-3700. The first step will be a complimentary call for us to get to know each other a bit, and you’ll clarify what you want your relationship to look like, sound like, and feel like. You’ll learn more about the Coaching Principles and process and we’ll talk about various coaching options for you. From then on, it’s totally your choice.
We invite you call us. You’ll be glad you did!
