On episode 16, we immerse our curiosity in all things relationship, love and conflict navigation with best-selling author Eri Kardos, also one of the most highly-referred relationship coaches globally, working with clients across 6 continents ranging from top tech executives to Hollywood celebrities to World-Champion athletes. She is known for her passion in helping powerful people create even more powerful relationships. She authored the best-selling book, Relationship Agreements: A Simple and Effective Guide for Strengthening Communication, Reducing Conflict, and Increasing Intimacy to Design Your Ideal Relationship. Before embarking on this path, Eri was a former leadership development professional at Amazon.com where she discovered that for her to have the greatest organizational impact (and feel most alive), she wanted to focus on relationships. Thus began her path.

With loneliness being the #1 public health crisis ahead of obesity in the US, there is clearly opportunity for a new relationship story to come through. While the old world model of relationship has been distorted in duty, obligations and the “should’s,” the new emerging story points to ever expansive choice and possibility. Possibility for consciously meeting our core wounds and inner toddlers with greater curiosity, intentionality, vulnerability, juiciness and relationship agreements that live and breathe alongside our own evolution. No right or wrong here.

In this incredibly invigorating and juicy conversation (with much homage paid to our mutual relationship hero, Esther Perel), we arrive at some powerful takeaways, including:

• What is really going on behind closed relationship doors during lockdown

• From corporate leadership development to whole person coaching, how she made the big leap to radically redesign her life, traveling abroad full-time with her husband and 2 kids

• What is the basis of a relationship agreement and who it’s for 

• How to navigate the living breathing relationship agreement during a global lockdown 

• How to know when a relationship is worth fighting for and when to call it quits

• How to expand our definition of “kink” and the power of play in a relationship, including N.I.C.E dates

• If you’re single, how you can prepare yourself for entering a conscious relationship (if you so choose)

• Her ingenious idea to roll out “Love on Lockdown,” for couples all around the world to consciously show up for the growth of their relationship
