Tools For Building Better Relationships

Episode 142Brute Strength


This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I got the chance to catch up with Misbah Haque and Dr. Megan Kaden to dive into one of my favorite topics, the psychology of human connection and relationships. Does your sense of “self” seem to disappear when you’re in a relationship? How do you balance the two? We’ll be answering these questions and more, including growing together vs. growing as an individual, how to practice good conflict resolution and, ultimately, how to motivate people through change and how we can use that to become a better coach, friend and/or partner. Enjoy the show.
