Relationship problems are among the top three reasons why people seek coaching or psychotherapy. In recent years, researchers have zeroed in on the habits of people who are highly successful in their relationships. Neurobiologists are also beginning to unravel the secrets of why relationship habits are so hard to change and how the brain can be rewired for greater flexibility.
Dr. Brent Atkinson has translated these scientific discoveries into practical methods for helping people develop more satisfying relationships. In this teleconference, he presents step-by-step methods for helping clients get more respect, cooperation, and understanding from others.
