"When Harry Met Sally” is a popular cinematic love story, of how boy meets girl. The magic of this tale is how the relationship evolves to a point that as the story ends and the theater lights gradually rise, the message is received: “They lived happily ever after.”
“When Angie Met Jeff” is a Wisdom Destination™ learning Masterpiece about a couple’s emerging commitment that was gradually heading in the wrong direction… an accident waiting to happen. Through the windows of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow, we watch as the pair struggles to avoid the Relationship Traps and instead achieve a life and love worth celebrating.
You will meet Angie, a woman on the fast track to a big paycheck and an even bigger corporate title. Her life-plan included marriage, but not until she had climbed the career ladder to the Director’s level. Her peers considered her to be bright, ambitious, collegial, and a force to be reckoned with. Angie was not loud, not ego-centric, and not someone to mess with.
Jeff was more difficult to read and predict. He was considered honest and dedicated. He earned his stripes the old-fashioned way: hard work and discipline. He is smarter than he gives himself credit for, but throughout his academic years, he struggled with self-confidence.
How will these two powerful, caring individuals manage their relationship and careers, especially after the arrival of their two wonderful children?
Join us on this Wisdom Destination™ and consider how YOUR COUPLE’S STRATEGIES are working. Are you operating with the myth that strong committed relationships are conflict-free? LACK OF TENSION is not the measure of an enduring love relationship. How a couple manages tension is more a key to happiness. For example, silence is one of the most dangerous traps: In the absence of information, partners are forced to make up stories in their minds.
As business professionals, both Angie and Jeff have participated in leadership training courses that helped them to manage teams and produce the results of a spirited high-performance team. Can these practices apply to their home life? How is their “family business” being run? Can the couple translate effective business rules and practices to their couple’s and parental relationship?
