Eva Medilek is a Relationship Style Success Coach and a graduate of the Ascension Leadership Academy. As a coach, she’s helped highly driven individuals restore intimacy in their relationships—using that drive to foster vulnerability and connection. She uses her personal experiences along with her leadership and transformational training to teach you how to communicate in a way that fosters intimacy and connection in your relationships. You don’t have to choose between being successful in life—over being successful in your relationships. Her and I both play in the Evolutionary Business Council space, so hit play and tune into this absolute Power House and dear friend.
Most of us want to feel seen and heard – these are universal wants across all peoples and cultures. So if you aren’t creating a space for the other side of your relationship to be seen and heard, you run the risk of alienating them and destroying connection and intimate moments. Not feeling heard can leave to increased conflict and even anger—so one rule you can follow is the listen twice as much as you speak. Slow down and listen without judgment or trying to interject your own comments.
There are simple things that can be done to prepare for communicating effectively and openly. Think of it like Spring is coming, so we till the soil so the plants can be well received. One thing Eva has coached a lot is the acknowledgment factor first – talk about what’s working first before going into what’s not. It shows appreciation and willingness to work and make things better without automatically setting up someone for being defensive.
There is so much power in feeling like you matter and make a difference, that the little things you do go noticed. Remember—you’re responsible for how your communication lands and your responses. You have a direct effect on the outcome.
