Love Lab

John M Gottman’s “Love Lab” has revealed its secrets, after hosting volunteer couples for 16 years. Couples are immersed in this somewhat special laboratory, where they are invited for a weekend. Researchers observe them through a glass without complexion and couples are monitored on some physiological parameters (heartbeat, blood pressure …).

The conclusions of this study are quite transposable into other types of relationships, such as friendship relationships, parenthood, or professional relationships.

When we talk about soft skills, the skills acquired in one context are transferable to others (personal, intimate, professional life).Only the issues and durations in which relationships take place differ.
