It's not about eliminating arguments it's learning to argue with your heart.
We were never taught how to argue to create connection and common understanding. We all know how to argue with our intellect. We know how to win, blame, dominate, and cause upset. But what if we want to create more understanding, share perspectives and grow together through our disagreements? How do we do that!?
Communicating towards connection comes naturally. What you need to do is REMOVE all of the obstacles. Learn how to do this in our 30 minute video and accompanying exercises.
Clean The Slate will help you to:
Disagreements are essential to our growth and connection
We thrive when we expand our perspectives, learn new things, and deepen our relationships. So why avoid them? Because most of the time they are filled with misunderstandings, accusations, fear, and regret. Learn how to argue differently and build an honest, open, vulnerable relationship.
