This episode is mostly safe for work, probably a PG-13 rating…but that’s true of most episodes of the show.
Bet you never expected to see a serious conversation about sex on a coworking podcast.
We talk about trust and communication a lot on this show because they are paramount to success in coworking, teams and collaborative work. Success in work is more about people and how they interact than anything else.
But we realized…those themes aren’t unique to success in the workplace. Human relationships are beautifully complex and messy, even without romance in the equation. Why not explore that beautiful mess with someone who knows a lot about it?
So in this show, my co-host Adam Teterus talks with his friend Dr. Timaree Leigh. Dr Timaree is a sex educator with a PhD in human sexuality, as well as being a writer and the host of her own podcast called “Sex with Timaree.”
Coworking is a fundamentally human experience, and I can’t tell you how excited I am about this episode. Press play with an open mind and you’re going to learn a LOT.
- “You and I share a space and that means we affect each other.”[3:02]
- “Emotional pain is instructive. It tells you what you need to be looking for.”[11:43]
- “Polyamory isn’t a specifically different way of relating, it’s just that there are just exponentially more people involved.”[15:41]
- “When someone isn’t in your tribe, you think of them as annoying. When someone is a part of your tribe, they’re just doin’ their thing, and you approach it from a more loving place.”[16:31]
- “With any conflict resolution, it’s not what they’re doing, it’s about where you are and owning that.”[19:47]
