Click above to see an hour long workshop on successful relationships with Duane O’Kane - 7 ½ steps to a successful relationship.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from the evening. Duane O’Kane had come all the way from his native Canada to talk to us about 7 ½ steps to a successful relationship. The talk was hosted by one of Liverpool’s best recovery agencies, Sharp on Rodney Street. Duane was introduced and built up by Jacquie Johnston-Lynch. Now I have a lot of respect for Jacquie but I have to admit I was thinking, “This guy can’t be that good”. But he was. On the Clearmind website it says Duane is “a dynamic and entertaining public speaker.” I couldn’t have put it better. From the off his explanations of how relationships work and what are often the problems within relationships was sharp and incisive. His 7 ½ steps were clearly explained with a vigor and honesty that held his audience captivated.
As the evening played out I don’t think I was the only one thinking… yup, that just about describes what I do in my relationships. And yup, they are the strategies I use to avoid talking about what I do. So Duane had us nailed. But like it says on the can, he gave us the steps and understanding to begin to find a way of dealing with relationships and life. Work your way through these steps and there’s hope for all of us. As for the last ½ step… Well there’s a nice little story to explain that. But you’ll have to watch the film to find out. You can also watch an hour long one to one interview with Duane here
