Lately I’ve been working with a slew of female executives who are primary breadwinners for their families. The changing roles we’re seeing in our culture are spawning some great conversations about gender roles, management styles and “leaning in,” among other topics. As the primary breadwinner in my household, these topics are quite familiar to me personally as well as professionally.

However, a more subtle shift is also coming up in my conversations with clients and friends alike, in the form of a disconnect that many of us feel in our relationships as our earning power grows.  One client has likened this to her relationship becoming “transactional” over time– meaning that our conversations and time with our partners become more about who’s doing what for the household, and less about intimacy and true connection.

So, this week I’m inspired to support success both at work and at home! In this week’s video, I’m giving you three easy ways to reconnect with your partner and recharge your relationship.  These tips don’t take a lot of time, but they have a dramatic impact on our relationships with those who matter most.  Check out this week’s video to learn more.

In the comments below, I’d love to hear from you about how your primary relationships have changed over time and particularly how you’ve chosen to stay connected!  And as always, I’d be honored if you’d share this video with friends and colleagues if you’ve found it helpful.

Have a great week and I hope you’re enjoying the transition to fall.
