Troubled marriages are all too common today.

People continue to look for answers that can fix their relationship, but they don''t find much beyond the usual fare. Drawing on a unique mix of expertise from working with employees to facilitate personal growth in the workplace in addition to couples workshops, the authors have developed a new approach that challenges common notions about what makes a good marriage work.

At its heart is an inspiring message: when partners commit to healing old wounds and strive for personal growth, they will greatly expand their capacity for intimacy.
