Bill saves his engagement
My CEO client (Bill) was so focused on his business, he was about to lose the love of his life. Bill called me one day to say his fiance had left him. Bill explained that he invited her over for another weekend together, but he had to work that whole weekend. Apparently that was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
I worked with Bill to prioritize what was most important to him. It was clear that this woman was at the top of his list. We worked on how to express his interest in her and what habits he would have to develop to be in a long-term meaningful relationship. I finally worked to get him to make a commitment to himself to make this relationship work.
It wasn’t easy, but Bill not only made a commitment, but took immediate action to win his fiance back. She (rightly) needed proof that he was truly committed. Fortunately, Bill recognized the mistakes he had made and changed his behavior to win her back!
