What Business Leaders Can Learn About Workplace Dynamics From Couples Therapy

Navigating relationships and cultivating relational fluency is key - both personally and professionally. Each of us carries specific narratives which guide our needs and expectations; how we connect to others, how we define trust, and how we engage or avoid conflict. Most importantly, these inner stories determine how we communicate and collaborate. We don't magically become different people when we walk into our office. Once considered a “soft skill” in the workplace, relational intelligence is now one of the top currencies of business success. Famed couples therapist Esther Perel has spent more than 35 years helping people articulate their aspirations, explore boundaries between the self and others, and repair trust that is broken. Now she’s applying her extensive knowledge of relationships to help us master workplace dynamics.
