Working with Anne & Heather has been truly transformational. I cannot believe how much using their framework  has changed my approach. New tools, new skills and best of all new confidence so no more 'good enough'.  Its had a profound impact on my relationship with my spouse, coworkers and teenage daughter!
Pamela D.
"Best investment."
My husband and I were constantly fighting. I could see my behavior was contributing but I felt powerless to do anything about it. The Toolkit helped me to really understand myself, why I behaved the way I did and how to talk to him about my needs in the relationship. Hands down the best investment. 

What's included in the Maximizing Your Relationships Toolkit...

Powerful insight into your brain's organization

We cannot get the satisfying relationships we crave by focusing solely on changing the other person. It's not the magic bullet for fixing relationships. 

First, you need to know the dominant quadrant of your brain, the innate psychological need that must be met and how you behave when you are being self-protective. 

With our Maximizing Relationships Toolkit, you...

  • Know the innate needs that must be met for you to feel satisfied in your relationships
  • Understand why you behave the way you do and how your behavior shifts when you are being self-protective
  • ​​Can start to recognize where in your relationships you are living on auto-pilot
  • ​Learn how to communicate with others about your relationship style and how it impacts interactions with others 

Clear user manual to leverage your brain's relationship style 

Based on your brain's organization, you have a relationship style - a set of behaviors that you use to get your psychological needs met in relationships to feel satisfied.

If you are not aware of your relationships' needs nor how they drive your behavior, you end up complaining and feeling powerless to change your relationships.

With our Maximizing Relationships Toolkit, you...

  • Discover how you may create challenges in your relationships when your needs are frustrated 
  • Get the roadmap to negotiate with your partner, boss, mother, etc., to get your needs met - no apologies for being who you are meant to be 
  • Stop relying on your self-protective patterns that keep you playing small and safe in relationships 
  • ​Get empowered to show up authentically and powerfully in any relationship, rather than adapting to keep others happy

First step on the road to relationships that rock at home & work

The next step to transform your relationships is to fully understand your brain's hardwiring, including its innate potential and what it takes for you to develop.

Transforming your relationships starts with knowing yourself and not relying just on the unconscious relationship strategies that are hard wired into your brain.  

With our Maximizing Relationships Toolkit, you...  

  • Embrace your authentic self and all of its unique gifts that are hard wired into your personality
  • Learn to recognize your self-protective (& self-limiting!) patterns that keep you from the relationships and life you crave
  • Know the exact steps you need to take to take back the power you have been giving away to others
  • ​Fix any relationship where you are struggling or feeling neglected, transforming it into one in which you are truly thriving

Get off relationship autopilot and back in the driver's seat of your own life.

"You have opened my eyes..."
You have opened my eyes to a new world of possibility for me. I knew that I was struggling, but it is so much clearer to me that I was actually avoiding the things that I should be doing to feel satisfied in my relationships. I was skeptical that it would make a difference, but I am proof that this approach really works.

Own your gifts. Embrace your power. Unleash your potential.

From the beginning, we have been committed to helping individuals, leaders and organizations achieve their potential. We developed the Striving Styles Personality System to provide the one thing we believed was missing - a clear, step by step roadmap for our development based on brain science and what it takes for us to truly feel satisfied in our lives

Discover how you can live a more fulfilling life, achieve the potential that you have been muting or ignoring, and embrace your inner power to become who you are meant to be. Your brain holds the key and we can give you the 'user manual' so that you are in the 'driver's seat' of your own life. 
Having the thriving, satisfying relationships you crave IS POSSIBLE. 
Let us show you how.

"Uncomplicating the complex..."
Figuring out how to deal with the mix of people in my life has always been a big struggle. Complex is an understatement when I think of dealing with their emotions, behaviors, attitudes, and more. The Striving Styles has uncomplicated the complex by giving me an understanding of what makes people behave the way they do so that I can lead them effectively, every time. Managing these relationships is so much simpler for me now. 
Molly M.
"Highly recommend it!"
Like most leaders, I thought I had it all figured out. But looking at my behavior, based on my own brain and even just thinking about the role my brain plays, it was a game changer. It has made it so much easier to even just talk about behavior and what is fueling it. I highly recommend this for anyone looking to increase their impact as a leader and improve their relationships.

Take the trial and error out of creating satisfying relationships and living a life in which you thrive.

We WILL help you understand what drives your behavior, how to use the abilities you were born with to achieve what you were born for, and provide a roadmap, based on your brain, to break the patterns of behavior that get in the way of having the satisfying relationships that you crave. 

Frequently Asked Questions
I've done assessments before. How is this one different?
When we set out to create the Striving Styles®, it was because we had worked with so many different assessments and tools, including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, that were not helping us or our clients to understand the 'why' behind behavior, and more importantly, the exact steps to break limiting patterns that stop us from achieving our potential in our relationships, our careers and our life. The Striving Styles goes beyond the assessment to provide you with a roadmap for development that you can navigate on your own, or with support, that takes the guess work out of trying to figure out "now what?" after completing an assessment.

How will the Maximizing Your Relationships Toolkit help me?
For many of us, we may recognize when we are feeling dissatisfying, frustrated, depressed or anxious, however, it is not always apparent to us why or what exact steps we can take to change these experiences in our relationships. The Maximizing Your Relationship Toolkit provides you with the insights, based on your own brain organization, to understand why you behave the way you do, how to get your needs met so that you feel psychologically secure, and gives you a step-by-step framework to shift from surviving to thriving in your relationships. It equips you with the tools you need to not only understand the mechanics of your mind, but the exact roadmap to create the conditions in your relationships in which you are most likely to thrive.

What is different in your approach to developing relationship potential?
One of the truly unique aspects of our approach is that it based on science and focuses on what we need as humans to actually develop towards our potential given our brain organization and the mechanics of the mind. It considers our conditioning and how that contributes to our self-protective patterns of behavior. We look at the whole person and believe that everything we struggle with as human's IS IN OUR HEADS, and therefore within our power to develop. Making it easy for you to understand your brain, how to leverage it fully, what you need to truly feel satisfied in your relationships and how you can achieve your potential, so you have the wisdom and the power to become who you are meant to be is behind everything we do. 

What if I want more one-on-one support or help from Anne or Heather?
You can book coaching sessions for yourself, with your partner or child, as well as group sessions if you want to leverage the toolkit further. We also offer a number of other online programs and access to our Private Facebook Group which provides ongoing support for our members. Contact us for more details. 
Leveraging your potential means being your own driving force in your relationships and life. The Maximizing Your Relationships Toolkit shows you how to tap into your innate relationship gifts, negotiate to get your innate needs met and, ultimately, to have the satisfying relationships you crave. 
You work far too hard, you have tried far too much and you have come too far to stop short of investing in yourself to achieve all your goals, your dreams and ultimately, all your potential.

You don't have to be any more ready than you are today. 
Create the relationships you are meant to have...we can show you how.
"Hands down this is way better than any other approach out there. Their no b.s., neuroscience-based approach just makes everything make sense and become doable. It was tough at times to look so closely at myself, but the shift in my perspective and behavior were profound. A must-do program for anyone who truly wants to thrive in their relationships and live their best life!"
