Striving for Perfection: Career vs. Romance
When you’re in corporate America as a successful executive woman, the controlling, ladder-climbing energy doesn’t necessarily stop when you head home at night.

How does this affect intimacy? Might it become difficult for your mate to enjoy time spent in your home life?

It may be refreshing for your mate to set boundaries. Your work-life attitude may not be a good fit for the home.

How to Be an Executive in Your Relationship

First, check in with the energy you’re bringing to your lover. How is that energy serving you? Is it helping you in the way you want? You should be able to be soft and vulnerable in your relationship.

Second, find out what your partner needs in the relationship. Don’t blow those things off. No need to build up resentment.

Finally, you have to communicate. Prevent worry and confusion by talking to each other.

Listen as life coach Sharon Pope joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to advise on how you can have as much success in a relationship as you do in the executive office.
