How to Step Out of a Power Struggle

by | Feb 5, 2024 | Healthy Relationships, Nonviolent Communication, Power Dynamics

Have you ever found yourself caught up in the tangled nets of a power struggle and wanting to find a way to more ease and collaboration?

One key to navigating power dynamics in relationships, is being clear about what we are in control of and responsible for – and what we need to release and let go.

On this week’s podcast episode, you’ll hear me reminding a caller to notice, accept and let go of someone else’s response to a boundary that she set, and to refocus her energies on what she is – and is not – available for.

Easier said than done, I know.
