In this Survival Series I’ll be applying the principles of my book to the predicament that millions of working couples now find themselves in – juggling their two careers, their relationship, and for some their kids too, under one roof 24/7. The series is a roadmap to the conversations that will help you manage your situation and grow together during this time. I hope that the series will help you pull through stick together, and also develop the habit of having deliberate conversations. That habit, I have found in my research, is the secret to successful working couples in the long run.
I’ll release a video with accompanying worksheet every day starting on Sunday 29th March.
Introducing the Survival Series
Introducing what you can expect to learn over the coming weeks.
Installment 1: Mapping Concerns
The most helpful place for couples to start when facing challenging times is to map their concerns. Watch the video to learn how and use the pdf as a conversation guide with your partner.
Installment 2: Setting Priorities
The most successful couples set their priorities before they figure out the practicalities of living and working in confinement. Learn how productively share your priorities so you know what matters most to you and your partner.
Installment 3: Parenting through the pandemic
Before jumping straight into routines and activities, take a step back to consider how the needs of your children have shifted. What do they really need from you now emotionally and practically? And how can you respond to these needs?
Like everything I do, Gianpiero was my inspiration and muse for this Survival Series… and my Chief Technology Officer, Producer, and Court Jester. Enjoy!
