Reframe Offenses Through Strength {marriage series 3 of 8} | Isogo TV Episode 56

StrengthsFinder Marriage Miniseries 3 of 8

He is dumbfounded when I get so bent out of shape about being late. I am perplexed when he makes a unilateral decision that I thought was part of our family rhythm.

In those those moments of dumbfound, it has been really hard to see the “genius” in each other’s Strengths. All we see is frustration and annoyance with something that seems so crazy to us!

Only when we make the effort to reframe offenses in terms of Strength do those dumbfounding moments dissolve, and true appreciation for each other reappears.

Today, in part 3 of 8 of our Isogo TV Podcast Marriage Miniseries we are talking through how to work through those dumbfounding moments, using the Strengths of your spouse to get there.

In Episode 56 of the Isogo TV | Live and Work Your Strengths Video Podcast, you can expect to:

  • Learn the practice we have learned to take in order to successfully reframe offenses in terms of Strength
  • Hear specific examples of what Strengths reframing looks like and how it has positively impacted the way we connect
  • Be inspired in your own marriage by specific examples from two of the most frequently occurring strengths — Achiever & Responsibility.

{Throughout this series, we are pointing you toward the 34 Ways to Connect FREE PDF resource over at Get your mind flowing about how to use your spouse’s Strengths to connect at a deeper or more nuanced level!}

To reframe offenses in your marriage, you have to start with a Strengths-orientation and mindset. While David and I use several different frameworks to help us emphasize strength, StrengthsFinder is by far my favorite.

So, if you and/or your spouse have not already done so, take StrengthsFinder today! It is the perfect first step in connecting more deeply with him or her!
