Co-creating Peace Episode #138 – “Boundary Badass: A Powerful Method for Elevating Your Value and Relationships”

  1. Co-creating Peace Episode #138 – “Boundary Badass: A Powerful Method for Elevating Your Value and Relationships” Kathleen Oweegon 27:06

In Episodes #20, #76 & #77, I had some great conversations with guests about boundaries. Today’s guests, Jan & Jillian Yuhas, twin sisters who are both psychologists and mediators, have a unique take on working with boundaries that emerged from their 20 years of experience in interpersonal psychology and mediation.

Welcome to “Boundary Badass: A Powerful Method for Elevating Your Value and Relationships” Episode #138 of Co-creating Peace, a series about conscious communication and conflict transformation.

Highlights of our conversation include:

  • Using “I”- statements to talk about our boundaries and our values
  • The importance of exploring shared values to help us find common ground
  • Using open-ended questions as “discovery” questions to help us respond to a triggering statement from a heart-centered, non-reactive place.
  • Moving from “me” to “we” to inspire collaboration and help elevate relationships

Jan Yuhas, M.A., MFT, and Jillian Yuhas, M.A., MFT, are Relationship Experts, Boundary, and Conflict Resolution Consultants, and the authors behind 'Boundary Badass: A Powerful Method For Elevating Your Value and Relationships.' Jan and Jillian are dedicated to helping value-driven entrepreneurs and companies cultivate mutually beneficial relationships, facilitate respectful conflict resolution, and empower others to master the art of setting personal and professional boundaries. With over two decades of experience in interpersonal psychology and mediation, the sisterly duo specializes in unlocking others’ inherent value, amplifying their personal development and professional performance, and guiding them toward relationship growth.
