Working with your partner?

Mar 04, 2024

Imagine sharing your morning coffee, strategic meetings, and dinner debriefs with the same person. Working alongside your spouse can be a complex yet rewarding journey. It's a dynamic that demands a unique blend of personal and professional boundaries, communication, and respect.

In my experience as a psychotherapist specialising in relationships, and as a leader of business leaders, I've observed that the success of such partnerships hinges on the ability to separate the roles within the workplace from those at home. It's about nurturing a culture where both individuals can thrive independently and as a unit. 

The Relationship Paradigm I've developed applies here too. It's about creating a foundation of mutual goals, understanding individual strengths, and leveraging these for business growth. Couples in business together must be vigilant in maintaining their personal relationship while fostering a professional one that benefits their shared vision.

The key is in the balance – knowing when to switch off the 'business mode' and focus on the personal, and vice versa. It's not without its challenges, but the rewards can be substantial. Imagine having a partner who not only supports your personal dreams but also shares your professional aspirations.
