Couples Plan

And Play Together

You’re a committed couple who dreams big. You want a thriving life. Your relationship, family life, professional pursuits, and maybe even a growing business are all of piece. You want all aspects comfortably melded, yet sometimes it’s important to disentangle them to make sure each facet is thriving on its own.

The Big Picture Partnering approach, developed by Dr. Jan Hoistad, is especially helpful for professional couples with two careers, entrepreneurial couples with one or two businesses or the couple with one overseeing the household and family organization while the other works in the business.

When you smooth out your daily details and reach for your greatest visions together, your life at home and the office, together and apart, is energized, more fun and rewarding. When we clarify your long-term vision, current needs, then strategize doable steps to get you there together, it’s invaluable.
The mindset, skills and tools of the Big Picture Partnering approach are all about coming together around values and vision, making decisions together—partnering towards the same end goals and life vision together. And having more fun in the process.

Learn the skills together, apply them and experience the ripple effect. You’ll find application in both your business and personal life, through your team, family and beyond. You’ll be more successful in all your relationships. You’ll be able to more quickly recognize new Choice Points as they come up in life, and we’ll be able to work through them easily, moving you further faster.

  • How do you establish a successful career while supporting your partner’s goals at the same time?

  • You wonder how to smoothly transition back and forth with your family needs, yet meet your own needs?

  • How do you keep the lines of communication open if your mate is moving faster or slower than the two of you had planned, and it impacts your career? How do you “take turns” yet keep from burn-out or resentment?

  • Do you feel confident that if you slow down the work trajectory to raise family, support your mate, deal with a disabled family member or aging parent you will be able to step in again at a later time, and have the support of your mate?

  • Do you have long-term plans together with strategies for meeting both your individual and mutual goals?

  • You’ve got a good relationship but want more for your future. You need help visualizing and strategizing a plan that meets everyone’s needs.

  • Are you experiencing financial disparity and don’t know how to talk about it?

  • One wants to change jobs or career paths, what do you need to know to confidently make choices, and mutually support that change?

  • The business is taking the focus. You are left to run the home, raise kids, feeling out of touch with your mate and worried you’ll be so disconnected your marriage will not weather the long haul. You’re not sure your mate even is aware of how far apart you’ve grown. How do you constructively raise the issue and repair the disconnect?

  • One of you has been offered a promotion requiring a major relocation. How do you face this choice point together and strategically act to ensure you have a great time, stay connected while meeting all family member’s needs?
