Over the years, relationship management has become tricky, and relationships have become complicated. When we talk about relationships, it doesn’t necessarily refer to a relation by blood but also involves casual relationships, intimate relationships, and professional or financial connections.
Getting involved in a new relationship whether it is professional or intimate can be intimidating and stressful, especially for introverts. The idea in the back of the mind that the other person may not like you, or may judge you based on what you are wearing or physical appearance can be a nuisance, but that feeling is difficult to ignore. Even more so, trying to decide what to say and how to successfully navigate small talk may cause so much stress that an introvert may shut down. Even extroverts can struggle with this at times.
Anyone who is a stakeholder in a person’s activity is somehow related to him. A couple involved in a physical relationship might be struggling with revitalizing the spark in their relationship. Couples might feel bored and exhausted due to the same pattern. But what to do?
For professional relationships, a doctor working in a hospital can have a relationship with his patients, juniors, seniors, co-workers, and employers. The same doctor will have a different set of a personal relationships with his family; wife, kids, parents, siblings, and friends. Balancing all these relationships, maintaining emotional stability and avoiding conflicts can be tricky when it comes to relationships, which can consequently destabilize a person’s life. This is where relationship coaching comes into the picture. While relationship coaching essentially addresses complications in all sorts of relationships, most people approach relationship coaches for family or marital counseling. Some corporate houses also employee relationship coaches for employee training in their organization. These trainings are aimed at enhancing and enriching their emotional quotient.
Relationship coaching helps renew a sense of hopefulness in the relationship. A couple whose relationship has hit rock bottom can be coached to find positivity in his or her partner. This can encourage them to work on their bond and reevaluate their relationship.
Relationship coaching also helps determine patterns in past, failed relationships. Breaking the pattern can lead to better, healthier relationships in the future.
A relationship coach can help you find the cause of a problem and helps you address the issue. For example, if there is a parent-child relationship where a parent is finding difficult to deal with their adolescent child and vice versa, a relationship coach can coach them and address the root cause of the problem that is triggering the bitterness in their relationship. They can be taught strategies in which they can deal their issues in a better way and at times look at things from a different perspective, which may help solve the problem.
A majority of issues in most relationships occur due to miscommunication or communication gaps. Little or no communication or negative communication, such as screaming or talking rudely, builds the foundation of many relationship issues and erodes trust. Relationship coaches can, therefore, coach and train them for better communication, which helps to bring in greater tolerance in the relationship.
A lot of relationship issues occur because a person is more inclined towards one relationship and fails to create a balance in his life. As a result, problems are created when a conflict of interest occurs. Relationship coaching helps a person strike a balance between his relationships.
One big advantage of working with a relationship coach is that they can help you reduce your dependence on others and help you gain your own self-esteem and self-respect. They help you to define and protect your boundaries such that others cannot overstep it. When a person is not emotionally dependent on someone else, s/he is better equipped to think rationally and make decisions that are healthy for her/his overall relationships.
