IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT YOUR UNIQUE CONTRIBUTION IS TO YOUR FRIENDSHIPS, HOW TO AUTHENTICALLY BE THE BEST FRIEND YOU CAN BE, AND BETTER UNDERSTAND HOW YOU’RE DIFFERENT FROM YOUR FRIENDS—THIS 90 MINUTE CLASS IS FOR YOU!
- Do you ever wonder what specific value you bring to your friends? Of course you’re nice, helpful, and you try to be funny—like the rest of us—but what makes you a different friend than someone else? What’s your sweet spot as a friend? What value do you bring in your friendships? What role is your strongest contribution?
- Do you ever feel frustrated that others don’t do for you what you do for them? You put yourself in the same situation and can’t for the life of you figure out why they didn’t do what seems so obvious to you? Do you catch yourself feeling judgmental that they can’t seem to give to you in the ways you think are foundational? Are you bewildered at their response, or lack thereof?
- Do you ever feel like your friends don’t quite “get” you? Maybe you feel judged for being too promotional or ambitious? Do they treat you like you’re a workaholic? Or leave you feeling like you’re lazy? Do you feel misunderstood, or judged, and aren’t always sure how to articulate the difference between what they’re experiencing and what you’re doing?
- Do you ever feel like you show up stronger in your work life than in your relationships? Perhaps you’ve figured out what you’re good at and what to spend your time doing at work but then you’re left wondering if we all have to be the same kind of friend? What if we could bring the same clarity about what we contribute to our friendships as we do to our work?
