Often issues that arise during communication are preventable issues that are linked towards our expectations in our relationships. Alexandra and Bob have created a four-step solution to framing your conversations in a way that result in a ‘hell yes’ for both parties. Co-authors and co-parents, Alexandra and Bob have brought their simple communication structure to the masses with their new book and are hoping to inspire everyone to get the most out of their everyday conversations.
Alexandra and Bob are diving into all four steps of their communication system in order to create a safe space and support others in your communication. By consciously framing how you ask questions, constantly viewing your decisions as a choice and continuously working to understand your triggers, you can get on the path of no drama and high joy.
Getting to Hell Yes is as much a communication tool as a mindset, and Alexandra and Bob’s interpretation of conversation is a refreshing change of pace in this modern world. By being vulnerable, expressing your expectations and truly listening to your partner you can begin to change the way you communicate and in turn your life.
