Sometimes the conflict that is draining our energy, depleting our mindspace, and derailing our focus is the one we don’t know that we’re having. It’s the judgments and criticisms we carry about ourselves: “I should be getting this done…”, “I know what I need to be doing, I’m just not doing it.” “I wasted my time! I need to organize my time better…"
Resolve the inner conflicts and find more energy and creativity in your business and in your relationships.
Conflicts happen when something matters enough to fight for it. The judgments, resentments and emotions that come up for us give us important information. They point us to what and who matters to us the most.

Talking about what matters opens opportunities for deeper connection. With a communication and resolving-conflict expert, you can move through conflicts in your family to establish deeper connections.
Break your habitual patterns and expand your capacity as a leader, a creator and a relationship builder.
The communication that got you here is not the same communication that will create the transformation you need move your business forward.
"How can I get them to...", "Why don't they listen to me?" "How do I get them to pay attention?"

Even when you love your parents, they very often are the main source of conflict in your life! (Often those conflicts are disguised as your inner critic or judge.
So think about the significance of being told to respect your parents.
The very people who may have failed to protect you in some way, who may have hurt you deeply, who may have disappointed you, or who may drive you crazy, who set expectations you never feel that you can meet – or whatever else, are the very people that you are “commanded” to respect.
“That’s just how it is,” says my friend about his family. Is that what you believe about your family also? Or is it with work where you say, “Well, that’s life.” I get it. We don’t know it can be any different. For me,…
