This week on the Brute Strength Podcast, I got the chance to catch up with Misbah Haque and Dr. Megan Kaden as we dive into one of my favorite topics, the psychology of human connection and relationships. Does your sense of “self” seem to disappear when you’re in a relationship? How do you balance the two? We’ll be answering these questions and more, including growing together vs growing as an individual, how to practice good conflict resolution and ultimately, how to motivate people through change and how we can use that to become a better coach, friend, and/or partner. Enjoy the show.
