By Rebecca Plant

Rebecca & Edward Plant 14

This week on Boardrooms and Bedrooms we deliver the first of our Superpower Secret Sessions, which delve deeper on the key issues that couples in business — that’s you — tell us you’d like to know more on.

But it’s not all just talk.

Ed is joining me for these sessions so that can we deliver real strategies and actions that you can implement in your business right away — and two heads are better than one, right?

Today’s episode covers the most common challenge raised inside the Couples in Business Facebook Group, within our PowerHouse program, and the main area of influence raised by our podcast guests so far… Communication.

When done right, communication equals connection, which opens up doors and raises your results in your relationship, with your team and with your clients.

  • Why communication matters.
  • What Ed tells clients over and over.
