Couples Strategic Retreat

In this episode of The Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie discuss the importance of having a strategy.

One of the biggest problems that most company leaders have is not having a space and time to sit down and plan a strategy. Believe it or not, this same thing happens with couples! Communication is key to having a successful coupledom. Being able to talk about the nice and the ugly of the relationship will only strengthen it. This retreat has not only to do with what is going on in the relationship but also with what is going on inside each of the individuals. Having the vulnerability to be accountable for one’s actions will open doors to more free communication.
