Relationship Counseling for Success
As you may well know, the divorce rate for first marriages has consistently been at 50% for a number of years. Did you know that the divorce rate for second marriages is 67% and third marriages 74%? As startling and unfortunate as these numbers are, they are very real and they have a very profound impact on people's lives, communities and the economy.
Did you know that the diovorce rate, the dissaloution rate, for business partnerships is 80%? WOW!
Again, startling, unfortunate and a major impact on people's lives, communities and the economy.
The Small Bussiness Administration says that 99.7% of all US employers are labled as "Small Employers." Yet only 8% of them are partnerships. Why only 8%? Divorce!
Not surprising is that some of the main reasons couples divorce, such as poor communication, lack of common goals or vision for the future, etc., are the same for partnership divorces. Love does not conquer all here.
Many married couples seek marriage counseling to improve or "save" their marriages. Although there is no guarantee that this will save a marriage, since 38% of such couples still divorce after counseling, 75% say their relationship is "improved" and 65% say it is "significantly better." This is especially true if the counseling is "on going" and not a one or two time "quick fix" attempt.
Relationship Counseling for business partnerships can have the same impact. The success rates for partnerships that work with a Relationship Coach or specialist are similar to the numbers above. Partnerships are usually formed for a good reason. Making sure those reasons are maintained and maximized takes work. Just like a marriage. A relationship counselor (Coach) can help drive the desired success of partnerships.
