Communicating Within Our Closest Relationships: Building Emotional Intelligence Muscles

Nancy Kahn hosts a show on communication practices that support close relationships: family, partners and friends. Why do people find it so difficult to communicate with the people they have the closest connections with? Dr. Marshall Rosenberg said we lose all of our skill with the people we are closest with when we get triggered. What communication challenges and interpersonal dynamics are people experiencing in close relationships? How can people move beyond stuckness and the cycle of participating in ways that leave them feeling repeatedly disconnected and disappointed? What practices can reconnect people back to power in their world and provide liberation from responding out of habit, instead of by choice?

Nancy offers insights and practice with several examples. She is live on air with listener calls and excitement to hold empathic presence and hear what people are going through. She gives live coaching on the air for your relationships.
