Overview

 The Relationship Doctor – THE BEST RELATIONSHIPS OF YOUR LIFE!  GET THERE!

Relationship Coaching at the Intersection of Biblical Wisdom & Personality Science with Ronna Phifer-Ritchie, PhD, Professional Relationship Coach & Personality Expert

 

Relationships are deeply spiritual work. We are designed by God to live in relationship. And we thrive when those relationships are healthy. And the ability to form and maintain good relationships has been repeatedly empirically demonstrated to be the single most potent factor in personal & professional success. Building good relationships almost always involves character work or “personality development.” It is that profound intersection point between the unchanging truths of Godly wisdom and those same truths, continually expanded and rediscovered in personality science, where we get the most powerful leverage for spiritual and relational growth!

 

Do You Relate to the relational style of the Reformer, the Helper, the Achiever, the Individualist, the Investigator, the Loyalist, the Enthusiast, the Challenger, the Peacemaker?

We all tend to have a favorite style of connecting with others and being in the world with them. While that style can be our biggest strength in some situations, it can be our most profound blind spot in others.

Ronna's model of Relational Style Coaching helps you do the spiritual and psychological work of identifying your specific interpersonal wake-up calls, and learning to use those wake-up calls to relax and expand your style. With these practices, you are freer to choose which strengths to use in each relational moment.
