We had the great pleasure of having Rhona speak at one of our Parent Workshops. Being a parent of three, I know how hard it is to take the time to communicate with my husband effectively but after the workshop I used the tools she suggested and was able to notice a huge difference right away. Rhona’s presentation was fun and interactive. Parents came back the next day saying that they have already started implementing the practices learned. –Renae Plant, Director, Camelot Kids Children’s Development Center, Los Angeles, CA
*RSI is an advanced coaching method that views all relationships—couples, families, colleagues, teams—as complex systems in which: conflict isn’t a problem but a signal that change is needed; all opinions are important, especially unpopular ones; and relationships aren’t about me, or you, they’re about us.
