Healthier Relationships with Children through Better Understanding of Ourselves

Leadership from Within – “Opening the Door to Healthier Relationships with our children through a better understanding of ourselves.”

The 12 Dimensions of Relationship

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower view points. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things.  (Message from George Carlin)

This Life-Shop  is about really getting down to the nuts and bolts of who we are, how we work. It is about developing an understanding of why we behave the certain ways in certain situations. Why experiences in our life and in our family keep on repeating themselves creating dramatic and tumultuous times in our lives. It is about creating this awareness so that we may begin to develop certain strategies on how to deal with those things that create pain and discomfort. It is said that these situations are there to help us learn our lessons.

You can be certain that they will never go away but you can also be certain that as you do develop tools and practices that you will be able to manage these situations in a more masterful way. No longer will you be a slave to them. No longer will you find yourself in situations befuddled, frustrated and screaming out-loud, how did this happen to me again.

We will take you through YOUR specific dimension and show you how to really have a greater understanding of who you are and how to master the nature of relationships that you attract into your life. The relationships with your parents, your spouses, your bosses and most important your children.

This journey will happen on 3 levels:

First Level - Development Stages of Life
The first is identifying certain developmental stages that we go through in life. Like beginning to crawl, then learning how to stand up for who we are, how to deal with our obstacles, humiliations, crisis, etc; learning how to get really good and feeling comfortable with those around us; Learning how to be of help to others that are around us.

Second Level - Dimensions of a Relationship
The Second part is identifying the key Dimensions of Relationship those qualities that define who you are in the moment. Why we attract certain people, as parents, why we have attracted these specific children into our family.

Third Level - Tools for Self-Discovery
The third part takes you through some tools that will help you develop a greater understanding of who you are, tools that you can use to help navigate through your unique life experiences.

You will then share your actual life experiences:
  • That will help yourself and others in their step by step journey;
  • That will help others feel better in the knowing that they are not alone;
  • That will help others shift and transform into someone who can better manage their own life and family situation and facilitate the next step for them to make!
