109:  How Embracing Non-Negotiables sets Healthy Boundaries in Parenting & Relationships with Monika Zands 

by neeta bhushan


Hey loves! In today’s episode, I’m joined by the one and only Monika Zands!

“If I can stay curious with them and I can stay innocent with them, it feeds my friendships, it feeds my marriage, it feeds my inner experience.”

Monika Zands is a master coach, offering executive coaching, corporate team leadership training, organizational strategy, business and marketing programs, and life and relationship coaching.  She found that although people achieve excellence in some areas of their life, they often struggle to see their own worth. She provides the consulting, strategizing, coaching, and courses needed to help her clients shift their mindset, challenge small thinking, and exponentially increase their productivity and happiness. Ultimately, Monika helps them produce unprecedented results in their life, business, and relationships. 

Monika is a momma of 3 and is the epitome of a respectable mother. She chooses to raise her children by guiding instead of telling, and notices that her children teach her infinitely more than she can teach them. She is passionate about creating a safe space for her children to grow and learn, and she believes in the power of staying curious and honoring her children. 

Monika is a gem, so join her and me in this juicy episode where we dive into all things parenting and relationships, from nurturing them to setting clear, non-negotiable boundaries. 

In today’s episode, we talk about:

  • Dreamcasting for a Better Future
  • Exploring the Transition from Reacting to Regulating in Parenting
  • Non-Negotiables, Communication Breakdowns, and Repair in Relationships
  • The Impact of Unmet Needs on Relationships
  • De-escalating Conflict
