Why you should listen
Relationships can be tricky. If you have a relationship (or two) in your life that you struggle with, this episode could be a turnaround point for you. Allison shares a wealth of information to help you understand the nuances of relationships. Whether you’re thinking about your partner, children, students or coworkers, this conversation explores ways to flourish in every relationship in your life.
This conversation raises many important points to consider in your relationships and gives you the confidence to identify warning signs before things implode. You’ll walk away with new skills to implement to transform the relationships in your life for better health and wellbeing.
- Always ask first, rather than assume or make judgments.
- Clearly articulate your own needs. Don’t assume your partner or colleague knows what you want or need at any given moment.
- Stop keeping score and gathering evidence to prove you’re right and the other person is wrong; this act is counterproductive to building healthy connections.
You can quote us on that…

“Being perfectly clear with what it is you want and need and how you work as a team. The other person is not a mind reader.”Allison Heiliczer
“Most of us, deep down, what we really want is for people to see us, for us to feel like we matter in this world, and for people to actually validate that what I’m saying is reaching you and has some sense of meaning to is.”Allison Heiliczer
