5 stages of relationship growth

Recently, I was privileged to be a part of a pre-Valentine's Day event for ABCD Health Service's  Sister 2 Sister HIV prevention program. The community event brought together young women and men in a safe environment where they could engage in meaningful discussion around how they could work towards taking their relationships with themselves and their partners to the next level in a healthy way.

In the video excerpt from the event below, I talk about 5 stages that many couples go through as they move through deep transformation in their relationships. The topic of healthy relationships is so important for everyone and especially for those of us who directly serve young women and men. If this video resonates with you, I encourage you to share it with others.

Also, if you need some support to take your intimate relationship to the next level let's chat, sign up for a free strategy session here.  Let me know what you think about the vlog, leave me a comment below.

The invitation of marriage

Why can marriage sometimes feel like an uphill battle? Do we really get all of what we sign on for when we marry someone? In this vlog, I talk about  the aspect of marriage that we hardly hear about, that is  the challenging personal development work that is part of the marital invitation.

I wanted to leave this one with you in honor of upcoming Valentine's Day! Let me know what you think about the vlog. Check out tajanrenderos.com to jump in on the discussion and check out other recent vlogs.

Also, if you're curious about coaching, go to my contact page to sign up for  two free exploratory coaching sessions to experience the benefits of coaching first-hand.

Thanks for watching the vlog! See you soon.

Relationships that last: Building from shared values

We all want meaningful, mutually beneficial and nurturing relationships, but for many of us this can seem so elusive and can leave us feeling  dejected or unworthy of these kinds of relationships.

In this vlog I talk about the simple reason why many of our relationships ultimately fail. Also, I talk about how you can assess the nature of your current relationships (personal and professional).  Finally, I share about how you can start building intimate, friendship, and working relationships that last and are based on shared core values.

If this resonates with you, leave a comment let me know what you think, and if you know anyone who struggles alot in this area please share the vlog. Until next time :)
