Event description
Learn the tools and practices of Modern Relationships with world-class faculty in an insightful, practical and inspiring group workshop.

About this Event

People today don’t only want practical or romantic relationships. They want to be with someone who inspires them to grow and be the best version of themselves.

Welcome to Modern Relationships.

• • •

Our closest relationships are a primary determinant of our social, economic, and psychological well being, yet we don’t have the tools and practices we need to build high-quality relationships. So what does a great relationship actually look like? And how might we build one?

Singles: We’ll help you learn how to *be* the right person, so that you can build the kinds of relationships you would like in your life.

Couples: How might you make your relationship great and consistently bring your best to each other?

• • • 

Join us on May 25+26 to learn the tools and practices you need to build the relationships you want.

Topics will include: self-awareness, personality styles, trust, working with conflict, emotional mastery, and mindfulness.

Invest in being the right person for yourself and the relationships that matter most to you.

I recommend this workshop for anyone who is interested in strengthening their communication skills and further understanding how to more effectively communicate in and within this world. This is far more than just a marriage seminar. It offers some necessary tools for a better life.​

– Troy Skog, Acting Teacher

I loved this workshop. It meets you at any level you’d care to go from communications tune-up to life.

– Micheal Vonn, Lawyer

Personal development and growth can be challenging, but MR 101 made it fun and inspiring and left me wanting to learn more! The course covered a lot of deep content in an interactive format that made it easy to absorb, and the structure was clear and logical. There was obviously a lot of thought and expertise that went into its design. Alex is a dynamic, insightful and engaging facilitator who created a warm and inviting space that was conducive to learning and enabled everyone to interact and feel heard.

– Sally Horne, Holistic Health Practitioner

1. Who are you and who is leading the workshop?

The workshop will be led by Alex Li Trisoglio. Alex is a world-class leadership advisor and relationships coach with 20 years’ experience working with senior executives of global organizations including McKinsey & Co. and The World Bank. He is an Adjunct Professor at UBC Sauder School of Business, and holds a first-class degree in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge and a PhD in Leadership from UCL. Alex has been teaching meditation and mindfulness for 20 years.

2. Who should come to the workshop? Do I need to be in a relationship?

The only requirement is that you're 18+ and you'd like to learn how to build great relationships. We welcome singles, couples, and those dating to the workshop, and those from diverse communities.

If you're single, bring a friend to get the two-person discount!

3. Will I have to share or stand up in front of the room if I don’t want to?

Psychological safety is one of our cherished principles. You are invited to share and participate at whatever level they are comfortable with.

4. What's the schedule going to be like? Are meals provided?

We will start promptly at 9am and end at 5pm on both Saturday and Sunday. Tea and coffee will be available from 8:30am. Meals are not included. We invite you to explore the many cafés and restaurants nearby.

5. Is this relevant for my professional development?

While there are some differences in application, the skills and practices to cultivate self-awareness, build strong relationships, and resolve conflict are the same in both our personal and professional lives. This workshop is equally relevant as an investment in your professional development.

An Important Note on Mental Health

No previous education on relationships is required. However this educational workshop is not therapy. If you have any serious mental health issues or are dealing with addiction, domestic violence, or other serious relationship issues that require intervention, this workshop may not be suitable for you.
