Relationships begin long before most of us remember
We are all in a relationship with ourselves & others.
Relationships come in all forms, be it with humans, mother earth or animals.
Each relationship teaches us something we are here to learn and if we don’t learn it, the next one will teach us even harder.
Being in relationship is not about us or the other…it is about what is between us and the other.
Relationship with self
When working with individuals, Liliane brings in your relationship with self. This could come in the form of working with your inner child or working with different voices that you listen to. There is also, as an individual, what relationship you may have with non humanistic things such as your relationship with money. Liliane brings in tools to have you experience this at a deeper level and walk away much more aware of your actions and choices. Liliane works with individuals in one-on-one coaching, with couples or any other form of relationship including friendships, partnerships, management, teams, etc. Relationship with self is the essence of everything that happens for us.
Relationship as a couple
When coaching a couple, whether it be an intimate couple or a couple of business partners, Liliane is always coaching the 3rd entity, the relationship. She may recommend that the individuals work with a coach separately as she is concentrated on what the relationship is looking for and what it wants happening. There is that invisible force between the two that has come together as the 3rd entity and this entity has a lot of wisdom and desire to make things happen. This is Liliane’s focus for the sake of the relationship only.
Relationship as a team
When coaching a team, in an organization or hospital, Liliane is very clear on educating the team on the 3rd entity, being the wisdom of the team. The voices of the team get expressed and help to find the solutions as one. When each individual understands that “they” are not the relationship but only a voice of the relationship, they learn to collaborate with others in service of a common relationship and goal.
Liliane often recommends her individual clients, couples and organization clients to read and work on exercises from John Gottman’s book the Seven Principles of Making Marriage Work. This book is highly recommended for couples working on their relationship in a marriage and has excellent exercises that are used in organizations as well, such as the 4 horsemen. “The Unspoken Secrets to Communication” is a highly interactive workshop that is a must in all relationships to understand ourselves, others and the relationship. This workshop has been delivered in organizations, hospitals and families around the continent.
