Couples counseling can help address failure in a relationship.
On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being an almost perfect relationship, how would you rate your relationship with your significant other?
Relationship ratings consisting of 4’s, 5’s and 6’s are livable averages. A relationship rating of 7 and higher means that you are on your way to a happy and comfortable life together. Relationship ratings that consist of 3’s, 2’s and 1’s mean you need help and this slope ends in a bad way. However, there is help. Marriage and relationship counseling can change your life as a couple, in meaningful and significant ways.
Think of your relationship with a significant other as a business. In some ways it is a partnership where time and money and real heart wrenching emotional effort have been invested for the immediate future and for the expectation and hope for a better long-term future.
Businesses measure performance on different scales, such as profit now and the expectation of future profits, return of equity, and various cash flow evaluations, but the end result is an economic value and the prospect for long-term growth. Businesses that recognize that they need help seek professionals to develop and implement performance measurement initiatives that will address those business practices that if improved will improve their performance.
Business professionals use the following tools to help businesses improve and measure their effort and evaluate the consequences. These could work to help your relationship.
*Develop a vision and a strategy that are actionable
*Ensure that the strategy is linked to resource allocation
*Help stakeholders develop goals to which they are committed
*Use state of the art improvement methods
*Prevent the concept of “striving for perfection” from limiting success
*Get good early results
*Use performance measurement
*Encourage all parties to buy into the process
