Learning to love without a roadmap makes it incredibly challenging to have a satisfying relationship. Katie Hendricks, along with her husband Gay Hendricks, has been teaching people to give and receive love better for 50 years!
It’s no wonder most people I talk to struggle in their romantic relationships. Most of us did not have good role models who laid out a roadmap for what to do when we feel hurt, disappointed, disrespected, unsupported… All inevitable experiences in relationships.
Emotional intelligence and conscious communication only recently became part of the mainstream, so most of our parents never learned or taught us.
Imagine getting to sit down with someone who has spent decades practicing and teaching people to create healthy relationships… Someone who is willing to humbly share their struggles, as well as the solutions they’ve found.
I got to do that with Katie Hendricks, one of the great relationship teachers of our time! Katie and her husband Gay have been teaching thousands of people to give and receive love for 50 years!
In our delightful and powerful conversation we discussed…
- The value and necessity of letting the people you love in
- How a partner becomes an enemy
- How to play with our personas rather than be overtaken by them
- The attention economy and how the roles you play affect getting the attention you want
- The Biggest ROI you can bring to your relationships
I am so grateful Katie was willing to share her wisdom with us. Don’t miss this one if you’re looking for trustworthy and timeless relationship wisdom!
