EP149: Robert Kandell on How to Show Up and Communicate Like an Adult in Relationships
I’m excited to share today’s episode with you wild ones. Robert Kandell is not just an uber intelligent, successful and funny dude, he’s got a breadth of experience that made for an awesome conversation. We explored many facets of relationships and intimacy, from emotional intelligence and self-awareness, to specific practices around communication and how to intentionally function in partnership by creating processes that prevent boredom, getting sucked into routines or becoming resentful over time. Finally, my favorite thing we got into – how women are getting messed up by their own masculinity. This episode is full of things I know many of you can relate to. Enjoy!
