Improving Family Relationships at the Holidays, is it possible?
Is there anyone who wouldn’t like to improve all of their relationships, whether at home, at work, or both?
And is there a better time to get smart about this than just preceding this festive holiday season?
Just as there are three dimensions of the physical world: height, width and depth, there are three dimensions of the interpersonal world: power, love, and mindfulness. How well we learn to navigate them directly corresponds to how well we live our lives, how happy and fulfilled we feel.
Human reactivity is the source of most of our interpersonal problems and pain. The 3 Dimensions of Emotions introduces the concept of working the triangle, a unique practice that provides a compelling yet practical road map that can help you move from painful reactivity to productive pro-activity in your relationships. And it works just as successfully for a CEO of a Fortune 500 company as it does for a parent struggling to communicate with a teenager. And for all other interpersonal relationships, too.
Mark Alyn discusses Family Relationships with Dr. Sam Alibrando, author of The 3 Dimensions of Emotions: Finding the Balance of Power, Heart, and Mindfulness in All Your Relationships, published by New Page Books, $15.99 softcover, $10.99 Kindle eBook.
Sam’s spent 35 years developing his model for doing so and has successfully taught it to thousands of people. He’s a psychologist, author, and speaker and has also made a career of transforming organizations by transforming its leaders.
He also explored Sam’s 3-D model for doing this and asked him about managing difficult people, the three colors of paint people use in different situations, red, yellow and blue, about managing ourselves first, and about finding the dynamic balance of power, heart and mindfulness. The answers are fascinating. We can all learn from Dr. Alibrando’s 35 years of experience.
